Event Overview

Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the aerospace and defense (A&D) industry as well as other government contracting service sectors has been active the last few years with significant deals among both private equity and industry buyers. Those involved need to be aware of the numerous risks and special considerations that can impact the strategic and financial value of government contractor acquisition targets. The success in achieving value capture and other strategic acquisition objectives is dependent upon identifying and properly evaluating those risks and considerations.

Please join DHG's Gary McDonald and Dennis McLister as well as their special guest Dismas Locaria of the law firm Venable LLP for a discussion of:

  • Recent trends in M&A transactions
  • Eight common areas of acquisition target risk that impact acquisition decisions and valuations
  • Tales of actual unexpected conditions or surprises that were encountered in acquisition due diligence efforts.
