Mercer Capital is a proud sponsor of the 26th annual Acquire or Be Acquired (AOBA) Conference, January 26-28 in Phoenix, Arizona. Acquire or Be Acquired Conference is the financial industry’s premier bank M&A conference for bank CEOs, senior management, and board members. Three Mercer Capital professionals, Jeff Davis, Andy Gibbs, and Jay Wilson will be attending this year’s conference.
Additionally, Jeff Davis and Jay Wilson will be copresenting a session alongside DeVan Ard of Reliant Bank. Below is a short description of their session “Evaluating the Buyer’s Shares.”
Although M&A is usually focused on the price (and valuation) sellers realize in a transaction, consideration paid to sellers that consists of the buyer’s common shares raises a number of questions, most which fall into the genre of: what are the investment merits of the buyer’s shares? The answer may not be as obvious as it seems, even when the buyer’s shares are actively traded.
