Despite emerging from an unprecedented period of market volatility and ever-shifting regulation, Merger and Acquisition activity in the cannabis industry still shows no signs of slowing down.
Simply waiting until an M&A opportunity arises often limits planning and structuring opportunities that can make a cannabis company more attractive to buyers and sellers and better situated to handle the integration requirements involved. It's important to understand key structuring and planning considerations that can lead to better M&A opportunities.
Watch the on-demand webinar from Alvarez & Marsal, Acreage Holdings, and Wurk as we discuss some of the key structuring and planning considerations, including:
- Entity structuring and other considerations, including planning opportunities when operations span multiple states
- Pre- and Post- M&A compensation and benefits diligence and planning considerations
- HRIS and system integrations to position long-term success
