In a merger or acquisition, the due diligence process is key. Any single issue can cause delay, add costs or potentially derail a merger or acquisition.

In this seminar, Steve Augustino, Partner in Kelley Drye’s Communications Practice Group, will discuss the primary trouble areas that telecommunications and other companies encounter, from enforcement actions and regulatory compliance deficiencies to corporate structure issues, and how to solve those issues with the least disruption.

Mr. Augustino also will offer suggestions for making your company more attractive in a merger or acquisition by conducting "pre-due diligence" before a deal is under consideration.

He will be joined by Jerry James, Chief Executive Officer of COMPTEL, the leading industry association representing competitive communications service providers and their supplier partners. Mr. James, who has extensive experience as both a buyer and a seller of telecommunications businesses, will address the key considerations to explore before consummating a transaction. Registration will be begin at 7:30 AM and breakfast will be served.
