Webinar: Merger Control and Competition Law in M&A Transactions: Need to know | Austria

Past event
21 February 2018, 15:00 - 16:00 UTC +01:00

Mergers & Acquisitions are meant to strengthen a company’s position on the market. But success is not always assured. Neglecting to address merger control and competition law issues in M&A transactions before it's too late is not unusual. For example, in 2016, the French competition authority imposed a record fine of EUR 80 million on the telecommunications company Altice for implementing an acquisition prior to merger control clearance (gun jumping) in an acquisition which was cleared by the French competition authority. So how can you make sure you get it right?

Each country-specific webinar is jointly led by one CMS competition expert and one CMS corporate/M&A expert who present the latest developments on merger control and competition law in M&A transactions. This webinar will inform you about the dos and don’ts regarding the merger control and competition law aspects of M&A transactions, due diligence and share purchase agreements in Austria. This includes topics such as stand-still obligation and gun-jumping, exchange of information prior to clearance by the competition authorities, clean teams and due diligence as well as merger control provisions such as non-compete clauses in share purchase agreements. 

Each session lasts 45 minutes and is held in English. Please go to the list below should you wish to learn more on the same topic in other jurisdictions.
