Event description

Description

Over the past year, Canadian capital markets have witnessed a surge in M&A activity. This activity is particularly conspicuous in the energy and power sectors as well as the burgeoning cannabis industry. Legal changes have developed that impact all public issuers in the capital markets, and particularly their approach to M&A from both the bidder’s and target’s perspectives.

This roundtable will explore these issues and focus on the following questions: what are boards’ views on defensive tactics? How involved is private equity in M&A? Has the regulatory presence decreased as a result of National Instrument 62-104? What has been the role of both activist shareholders and proxy advisory firms in change of control transactions? What lessons does the Aecon transaction provide in terms of Industry Canada’s review process? What should we expect to see in 2019 including in terms of cross-border transactions?

Speakers:

Anita Anand – Stephen Griggs Edward Iacobucci – Naizam Kanji – Jeffrey Lloyd – Stan Magidson – Patricia Olasker – Karrin Powys-Lybbe – Walied Soliman – Robert Yalden
