Whether the public offering window is opened or closed, public companies can be attractive acquisition targets. As a result, investors continue to explore opportunities to participate in going private transactions. Goodwin Procter has been advising investors, board members and management teams as they negotiate and execute these transactions for over two decades.

Please join us for an in-house breakfast event for our clients and friends focused on effectively executing going private transactions. The panel will include Kathy Fields, co-chair of Goodwin Procter's Silicon Valley office, and Brad Bugdanowitz, partner in the Private Equity group. Topics to be covered include:

  • The difference between going private and going dark

  • Potential structures and the process and timelines for executing the different transactions

  • How a going private transaction is different than an acquisition of a private target

  • Pitfalls for the uninitiated, including filing requirements for private equity sponsors and disclosure obligations regarding projections and post-transaction plans for the target company

  • Minimizing litigation risks
