Webcast

Note: CPE credit is not offered on this program

This webinar will offer advisers and counsel a review of tax implications of executive and employee compensation in the context of a merger, acquisition, or sale of a business or business unit. The panel will provide best practices for counsel to avoid tax pitfalls in structuring and implementing a deal.

In the context of mergers and acquisitions, there are several tax-related executive compensation matters to consider.

Various Internal Revenue Code sections are implicated. For example, severance pay and other deferred compensation must comply with Section 409A. Various tax codes deal with the treatment of outstanding equity-based awards, including restricted stock, stock options, and restricted or deferred stock units in transactions.

Section 280G governs golden parachutes. Such tax issues can often significantly impact the price and structure of a deal. Practitioners must fully understand these tax issues to avoid pitfalls in structuring and implementing the deal.

Listen as our authoritative panel of tax and executive compensation practitioners guides you through the tax implications of executive and employee compensation in the context of a merger, acquisition, or sale of a business or business unit. The panel will discuss how to avoid tax pitfalls in consummating these deals.

Outline:

  • Restricted stock and restricted stock units
  • Stock options
  • Deferred compensation
  • Severance
  • Golden parachutes

The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • What is the impact of IRC 409A on deferred compensation for executives?
  • What limits does IRC 280G impose on golden parachutes to executives?
  • What are key strategies for dealing with outstanding compensatory stock options in a merger or acquisition?

Faculty:

  • Laura McDaniels, Special Counsel, Baker Botts
  • Rami Glatt, Senior Consultant, Semler Brossy Consulting Group
