    Hostile or Friendly? – The Changing Face of Israeli M&A Deals

    Shareholder activism and hostile M&A activity, historically seen primarily in the US, have increasingly made their way into the Israeli public markets and become a reality for Israeli public companies, whether listed in the US or in Israel. Please join Ron Mosberg, General Counsel of Enzymotec, and John Reiss, Global Head of M&A at the international law firm White & Case, in a fireside chat as they discuss their real-life experience navigating an initial unsolicited hostile approach by a significantly larger corporate acquiror and steering it towards a friendly acquisition, all while increasing shareholder value
