Adam Lezack, co-founder and Managing Director at Fortis Advisors, participated on a panel discussion on Venture Backed M&A during the 2016 ABA Annual Meeting. The panel discussed critical and complex issues that commonly arise in acquisitions of venture-backed companies, including complex waterfalls, the blurring of management incentives with purchase price, disproportionate allocation of indemnity risk among stockholders/stakeholders, dealing with equity incentives, and fiduciary duties of VC BOD nominees.
