Startup Company Carve-Out Plans: Mechanics, Tax Obstacles, and Optimization

To further complicate matters, carve-out plans are subject to a unique and complicated set of tax rules. Attendees of this discussion will gain insights on common constraints on carve-out plans in the U.S. tax regime, as well as new proposed regulations and recent Delaware case law on these topics.
