S&C Assists in Preparing American Bar Association Business Law Section’s Mergers & Acquisitions Deal Points Study

October 2011

For the second consecutive year, an S&C team assisted in preparing the American Bar Association Business Law Section’s Mergers & Acquisitions Deal Points Study. The annual study provides a comprehensive analysis and compilation of material terms in publicly-available acquisition agreements for acquisitions of U.S. publicly-traded target companies announced in the prior year. This year the S&C team again analyzed the break-up fee provisions of the 127 agreements announced in 2010 that met the study’s requirements.
