An increasing proportion of global M&A transactions take the form of spin-offs, equity carve-outs and similar architectures not involving an outright sale.  But what is a spin-off, what makes it different from other types of business separation transactions, and why are people doing more of them?  This program will provide an in-depth perspective on:  the factors that drive the recent trend towards business disaggregation; special variations on spin-offs, such as split-offs, REIT spin-offs and “spinversions”; and private spin-offs.  In addition, emphasis will be given to practical obstacles and pitfalls in structuring and executing spin-offs, such as those arising in connection with applicable tax laws.

What You Will Learn

  • Strategic and other factors motivating companies to spin off business units
  • Different architectures for accomplishing transaction objectives

  • Special variations on spin-offs, such as split-offs, REIT spin-offs and “spinversions”
