Distressed Mergers

This programme is only available on in-company basis. Please, contact us for more information

Course Description

Following the Great Recession of 2007 - 2009 there are a number of distressed and insolvent companies that are available for acquisition. Current market conditions provide a unique opportunity to acquire assets at a price much lower than previously possible. 

Presenting some results from proprietary research conducted at the M&A Research Centre at Cass Business School this course will provide participants with tools required to analyse which deals are successful and why. A number of case studies including the acquisition of Merrill Lynch by Bank of America and Lehman Brothers' US business by Barclays Bank will be discussed in-depth. Group break-out sessions will also allow participants to identify the critical success factors in making distressed deals work.
