2011 should be a busy year in financial institution M&A and many deals will involve financial assets and businesses, including distressed portfolios. Financial institutions are searching for ways to address the evolving regulatory and business environment, as well as the capital costs and risks posed by large portfolios of financial assets. And purchasers are seeking strategic methods to redeploy these assets. Depending on the circumstances and objectives, a variety of potential solutions are available to aid in corporate balance sheet repair and strategic deployment of financial asset businesses. Evaluating and implementing the appropriate strategies requires a multifaceted approach.
In this three-part Global Financial Markets Initiative teleconference series, Mayer Brown attorneys from M&A, Banking & Finance and Financial Services Regulatory & Enforcement will address the complex issues that face parties selling and purchasing financial assets and platforms.
In the final installment, Mayer Brown partners James Carlson, David Sahr and Reb Wheeler will address:
- Joint venture process and documentation
- Control, governance and other common issues
- Off-balance sheet versus on-balance sheet treatment for capital and accounting purposes
- Ongoing funding issues
- Regulatory and licensing issues
