Course introduction

Course objective: To learn about the role of insurance in mergers, acquisitions, and bankruptcy.

The 20th century closed with an unprecedented number of businesses engaged in mergers or acquisitions (M&A). Several converging trends make it likely that M&A activity will continue to grow. Mergerstat, a firm that tracks M&A activity of U.S. businesses, reported a record of 9,602 publicly disclosed mergers and acquisitions in 2000. Although experts predict that the pace of multibillion-dollar M&A deals will slow for a while, M&A activity among small to mid-sized companies will continue unabated.

In this course, you will learn about mergers, acquisitions, and bankruptcy through the following topics:
  • Growth: acquisition, merger, and LBO
  • Successor liability
  • Insurance industry response
  • Acquisition risk exposures
  • Best practices for M&A
  • Reduction: termination and bankruptcy
  • Chapter 7 and Chapter 11

    We recommend that you take the M&A, Bankruptcy, and Insurance (Part 2) course in addition to this course to complete your understanding of role of insurance in mergers, acquisitions, and bankruptcy.
