Hostile Takeovers in the Oil & Gas Industry and Beyond

Energy Series Logo - Universal - 770x420

Historically, hostile takeovers in the oil and gas industry have been rare. Times have changed, as we have seen several unsolicited and hostile takeover bids in the oil and gas sector in the past year. Low commodity prices continue to depress market caps in the energy sector, and low stock prices tend to spark hostile takeover activity. In this presentation, attorneys of V&E’s Hostile Takeover Defense Team give an introduction to hostile takeovers, including an explanation of the hostile bidder’s playbook, potential countermeasures and an overview of advance preparation measures.

This presentation was recorded and current as of September 9, 2015. Content viewed after this date may no longer be current.
