M&A Pre-Nup: Insurance Due Diligence

  • Organizer: RIMS Indiana Chapter
  • Location: Indianapolis, IN
  • Date: June 12, 2014

Shareholder litigation has become an almost obligatory feature of mergers & acquisitions.  Cornerstone Research reports that in 2011 96% of deals valued over $500 million and 85% of deals valued between $100-500 million attracted litigation-an average of over 4 suits each.  The near-certainty of litigation in the wake of M&A highlights the imperative for risk managers to conduct effective due diligence on a prospective acquisition’s [or buyer’s?] historic insurance assets and potential liabilities or losses.  In this session, risk managers will learn how to assess a target company’s liability risks and evaluate any potential insurance shortfall.  A risk manager will address real life examples of what worked well and what didn’t in performing M&A due diligence.

This program is being brought to you by Anderson Kill and the RIMS Indiana Chapter in connection with the Professional Exchange of Risk Knowledge, PERK 2014.
