The panel will discuss the fiduciary issues that directors and officers face in the current M&A market and consider the lessons to be learned from recent decisions of courts in Delaware and Texas concerning the deference afforded boards to run a sale process, the competing interests of holders of common stock, preferred stock and debt, and the duties of controlling stockholders in a sale process.
