M&A expert manager training

Purpose of the training course

Providing an overview of M&A transactions, equipping participants with the professional knowledge and competencies required for the successful management and coordination of sale and acquisition processes. Upon completion of the training, M&A experts will have a comprehensive overview of the most frequent challenges relating to sales and acquisitions, major risks arising in due diligence reviews and business valuation, key transaction documents and negotiation points, as well as the practical management of the challenges and risks arising in the course of M&A transactions.

Course participants will gain an insight into the legal structuring of transactions and obtain guidance on the typical practical issues in civil law, company law, labour law, and competition law. After the course, participants will understand the major risks, and the high-level impact of acquisitions, group restructurings from an accounting point of view (e.g. profitability, consolidated financial statements, KPIs etc.). The course will also include a high-level overview of the taxation-related challenges of M&A transactions (in the legal module).

Regional, interdisciplinary knowledge

PwC network firms within CEE regularly cooperate with each other on regional M&A transactions and advise Clients on financial, accounting, tax and legal aspects of such deals. Our training is based on our experts’ related international experience and multidisciplinary knowledge. During the training, we will present several areas, which are equally relevant in the whole CEE region (e.g. use of English law) while we will also outline some local, country-specific particularities within the M&A market.

Who is the training for?

Our training course is recommended for business owners and decision-makers who are planning a sale or an acquisition transaction, as well as for experts who work in the finance, tax and legal fields, especially for players in the investment, banking and capital markets sectors. Course participants will familiarise themselves with the legal, taxation and accounting aspects of M&A processes. The structure of the course allows participants to pick any specialised advanced module according to their scope of activities, following completion of an introductory foundation module.
