Jonathan and I discuss deal protections and considerations – from the initial emotions of deciding to sell through deal signing in this latest episode of The Bank Account.
This episode has, in my opinion, some great information for banks looking to undertake M&A activity, from either the buyer or seller’s perspective. But, I’m most impressed with our smooth transition from friendly banter about our upcoming Ragnar race to our substantive discussion. (Of course the face that I’m impressed only emphasises that I shouldn’t quit my day job.)
As noted on the podcast and previously, we are sponsoring two teams, one of lawyers and one of bankers, for the Atlanta Ragnar Trail Run on April 13th and 14th. Sixteen of us will be taking turns running five mile legs at the Georgia International Horse Park over a 24-hour (or so) period. Today we settled on team names: Team BSA and AML. Team BSA (or Bankers Speed Ahead) will generally consist of our friendly bankers, while Team AML (or Awkwardly Moving Lawyers) will consist of our compatriots from the firm. We’re pretty comfortable that the names will accurately reflect the results.
