Practical insights into corporate restructuring, mergers & acquisitions, leveraged buy-outs, etc. that are common in inorganic growth and strategic finance.

Programme Overview
Increasing global uncertainty, volatility in capital flows, intensifying business competition, disruptive technologies, changing consumer preferences, increasing investment, and financial risk are some of the factors influencing how business is conducted in the 21st century. Organisations are being driven to constantly reinventing themselves and competing on the basis of speed, cost, quality innovation, flexibility, and customer responsiveness. Corporate restructuring plays an important role in this overall strategy. At the same time, consolidation as a growth strategy to achieve scale is driving M&A to unprecedented levels. The development of new sectors, start-ups that are driving innovation, and disruptive businesses have created a new flavour for substantial acquisitions, buyouts, and divestitures.

This programme will provide expert conceptual and practical insights into the nuances of various methodologies for corporate restructuring, M&A methodologies, LBOs, and other such transactions that are commonly used in inorganic growth and strategic finance. Deal aspects such as choice of method, valuation, structuring, tax and regulatory framework will be covered in detail using case study discussions. Role play and group assignment are also included in the learning experience.
