Everyone is getting into the blockchain game. Companies like Disney are filing patents in the area and Fox is jumping on the NFT bandwagon. EY has invested in research while automaker Renault is developing blockchain for supply chain compliance. As blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT) continue to proliferate, corporate transactions involving these blockchain businesses are on the rise. But it’s not just the cutting-edge technology at issue. These deals can present unique challenges in terms of valuation, legal and regulatory due diligence, and technological integration.
Given these points, Butzel Long is hosting a free webinar titled, “So, You Want to Buy a Blockchain Company: Considerations for Corporate Transactions,” from 12-1 p.m. (EST) on Tuesday, June 15, 2021. Presenters will offer practical guidance regarding the sale and acquisition of DLT companies, from identifying key issues and risk, preparation, negotiation and memorialization of key terms.
