The Cannabis Law Sessions: Liquidity Events

 

 

 

Event Date: Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Event Time: 12:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m

Event Location: TBD

Event Description: New this year, INCBA will be presenting Continuing Legal Education in Las Vegas in conjunction with MJBizCon. We are incredibly excited to finish off our educational year speaking about liquidity events for your clients – how to make an exit and help your colleagues realize the gains of their sweat equity. Our four hours of Continuing Legal Education in Las Vegas will center on business exit strategies and liquidity events.

Whether the founders want to step back entirely or continue to play a role in the management of the company they built, their goal will be to realize some or all of the gains of their sweat equity in these transactions. And, on the other side of the table, your investor clients have a host of factors to examine as they kick the tires on these commercial cannabis operators. During the sessions, we will take a look at:

  • Sale of the part or all of the business assets of a company (M&A Activity).
  • Accessing capital markets (determining jurisdictions and preparation for an IPO).
  • Alternative means of Monetizing Assets (royalty agreements, white-labeling, leasebacks, etc.).
  • Tax aspects of liquidity events and deal structure.

Rounding out INCBA’s 2019 educational arc, these important sessions addressing the issues and mechanics for cannabis business exit strategies and liquidity events will give you the tools you need to best serve your clients.

Solicitors’ Soiree 

Join INCBA 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. (*time subject to change) for our 4th annual MJBizCon Party. Access to the party is included in the cost of the CLE Registration (and free for INCBA members!).  See you there!
