  • Webcast

Market volatility has been a contributing factor in the recent uptick of the adoption of Poison Pills. Some companies have implemented traditional Poison Pills to deter opportunistic stock sweeps, while others have considered implementing Poison Pills to preserve valuable tax assets (such as net operating losses).  On May 13, 2020, partners George Casey (New York-Mergers & Acquisitions), Jay M. Singer (Washington, D.C.-Tax) and Roger Morscheiser (New York-Mergers & Acquisitions) discussed both types of Poison Pills and when companies can utilize these defensive strategies. Topics covered included:

  • How current market conditions can entice activist shareholders and opportunistic buyers
  • The risks associated with unanticipated acquisitions of large amounts of company stock
  • A discussion of traditional Poison Pill and tax Poison Pill mechanics – and how to decide which is best for your situation
