DealMakers Breakfast:

Organization:  Association for Corporate Growth, Boston
Location:  Newton


Choate partner Stephen Hurwitz moderated the Deal Maker’s Breakfast panel Opportunities and Landmines of Investing in and Acquiring Businesses in Canada.

The flow of deals in this landscape is increasing dramatically and global economic activity plays a role in rejuvenating economies and select markets.  To provide insight into this fast-changing marketplace and the risks and opportunities it presents, leaders in the cross-border deal community shared their perspectives on topics including:

  • What's ahead for cross-border M&A markets
  • Where are the tax land mines when US private equity firms acquire/invest in Canadian companies
  • The true effect & future of exchange rates between Canada and the US
  • The perception vs. reality of doing business with Canadian companies
  • Will changes in the current debt market affect cross-border deals
  • Will a recession take hold – or will the economy come roaring back with the help of our brothers to the North
