Retrade is a four letter word in M&A.  They involve buyers adversely changing the agreed upon valuation and terms at the worst possible time (right before the closing) for sellers. Going into a weaker M&A market will surely increase retrades.

CMG's Managing Partner, Michael Carter, spoke at the Divestopedia "Retrading M&A Transactions" webinar. Learn how to avoid retrades and have a closing where everyone is smiling and high fiving.

This discussion covered:

✔ What is retrading?
✔ What are situations where retrading is appropriate?
✔ How should a buyer handle retrading?
✔ How should a seller handle retrading?
✔ What are alternatives to retrading transactions?
✔ What are the consequences of retrading transactions?
