Mergers & Acquisitions – Due Diligence & Integration
Thursday September 22, 2016
8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (CDT)
Location: General Mills Inc. - One General Mills Blvd., Golden Valley, MN 55426
The NAEM Upper Midwest Chapter cordially invites you to the fall chapter meeting at General Mills. This meeting will have a panel discussion on due diligence including Phase I/II, data rooms, compliance reviews, asbestos surveys and working with attorneys. In addition, we will discuss best practices to address integration challenges such as culture, budgets, systems/tools, corporate standards, and sustainability.
Is a Phase 1 enough? How do you know when to stop the due diligence?
You have 800 documents to review in the next two weeks, how do you get it done?
Balancing acquisition risk with desires of the business – is there a middle ground?
What is the goal of due diligence vs integration?
Post-acquisition: How do we integrate company cultures? What about EHS/sustainability metrics?
The meeting will be followed by an optional networking lunch to allow continued discussion and networking with your peers. Come to learn and more importantly share what works well for your organization!

Today NAEM announced its 2017 conference calendar, focused on the latest management challenges and emerging practices for environment, health and safety (EHS) and sustainability leaders. "Because the EHS&S field continues to evolve along with the spectrum of risks it manages, NAEM's 2017 calendar was developed to be timely and relevant to the needs of those leading these programs within companies," said Executive Director Carol Singer Neuvelt.
