Kirkland Seminar

Equity Derivatives: A Walk Through for Public Companies

Join us for a practical discussion of equity derivatives relevant to public companies. In a conversation geared for Finance and Legal, we’ll lay out the fundamental building blocks of popular derivatives trades, provide insight into common use-cases and highlight some common pitfalls for products such as:

  • Accelerated Stock Repurchases
  • Reverse ASR Disposition Strategies
  • Call Spreads
  • Trust Mandatories

Particular focus will be on structuring, disclosure and regulatory considerations, accounting implications and lifecycle challenges (such as handling unwinds). We’ll close the loop with a look at the flavor of the day and what to expect in Q4 2021.
