KPMG Tax Planning in 2021 for Life Sciences Series: Value Chain Management

On April 28, join leaders from the KPMG Life Sciences and Tax practice in the northeast for the first session in our series: Tax Planning in 2021 for Life Sciences.

In this first virtual event of the series, we will discuss how integrated tax and business planning can minimize risks and create tax efficiency throughout a company’s lifecycle.

Life science companies with complex and integrated global operations are being faced with the challenge of rapidly adapting to a changing regulatory environment, as well as the supply chain pressures created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Effective tax planning requires a detailed and holistic understanding of the company’s business activities. Proposed changes to U.S. tax laws under the Biden administration may make tax planning even more complicated. Companies that understand the interplay of U.S. and foreign tax issues will be best equipped to address the challenges of today’s environment.

Future sessions in this series will include:

    Recent trends in M&A: From strategic acquisitions to SPAC IPOs, M&A activity is expected to be strong as the U.S. economy recovers

    State and local tax matters: Whether incentives are relevant or remote workers are prevalent, state and local tax planning is crucial

NACD Webcast: Governance in the New World of SPACs

pecial Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) are companies that have a special purpose to complete an acquisition, and can also include mergers. SPACs have surged in popularity as an alternate to IPOs, with a SPAC raise of $33.1 billion in 2020 (through August 31, 2020) which included 81 SPAC IPOs, with an average raise of $408.7MM. The NYSE did not list any SPACs until May 2017 and they are now the top in terms of listing by volume for 2020.

Companies that wish to participate in a SPAC rather than taking private equity investment, or going public with a traditional IPO, may receive higher valuations; may maintain a significant stake in their company; can complete a deal in 2 – 3 months vs. 6 – 9 months to finalize an IPO; and can save significant costs associated with IPOs.

Join us on April 27th as we explore the role of the board as either the acquirer, or the acquiree.

Start time: 4/27/2021 – 4:30 pm ET
