Mergers and acquisitions in Russia and CIS. IV IBA Conference

The IV IBA Conference “Mergers and acquisitions in Russia and CIS” organized by the Corporate Law and M&A Transactions Committee of the International Bar Association and the European Regional Forum of the International Bar Association together with the “Mergers and acquisitions” magazine will be held in Moscow on 24 and 25 October of 2012.

The Conference has earned the repute of one of the most indicative and known events dedicated to the topic of M&A in the Russian and foreign market of business events.

The event is held with the support from the Federal Chamber of Advocates of Russia.

270 M&A transactions (transactions, which resulted in the change/appearance of a controlling owner) were qualified in the Russian market of mergers and acquisitions in 2011. The volume of the market reached 47,39 billion USD, which is a little more than in 2010. Foreign investors are still interested in Russian assets, but rather in a potential, prognostic way. Such waiting position is also connected with the extremely unstable situation of certain large economies of the world.

  • Should a significant growth of the market be expected in 2012-2013?
  • What factors currently affect the development of the M&A market in Russia and CIS?
  • In what economy sectors should the most M&A activity be expected?
  • What changes will be made to corporate and antitrust legislation this year?

Leading world M&A specialists, largest investment bankers and experts will discuss those issues, as well as all aspects of executing M&A transactions, within the program of the Conference.

Evgeny Zhilin, Associated Partner of the Law Firm "YUST", represents the Firm at the event. He will speak at the session “Will Russian law govern the transactions of merger and acquisition?” (first day of the event, October 24, 2012).

In his speech, he will tell of the perspectives of application of agreement guarantees in M&A transactions in Russia law (analysis on the basis of current arbitration practice).

Session time: 11:00 – 12:30.

The program of the session and the list of participants are available here.

The Conference is to be held at: Ritz Carlton Hotel, Moscow, Tverskaya St., 3-5 (subway stations “Okhotny Riad”, “Teatralnaya”, “Ploschad Revoliutsii”).
