Jack Cummings presented, "Exploring the Limits of the Evolving Economic Substance and Related Doctrines; the Effects of Codification," during this seminar sponsored by Practising Law Institute (PLI). This PLI program focused on the tax issues presented by the entire spectrum of modern major corporate transactions, from relatively simple single-buyer acquisitions of a division or subsidiary to multi-party joint ventures, cross-border mergers, and complex acquisitions of public companies with domestic and foreign operations, including spin-offs and other dispositions of unwanted operations. Evolving techniques for structuring, financing, and refinancing corporate turnovers and other activities were emphasized, with particular attention being paid to consolidated return issues, to financially troubled businesses, to the role of new financial products and the effects of the evolving economic substance (now codified) and business purpose doctrines, and to selected current issues in mergers and acquisitions, including the effects of recent legislation on executive compensation and on workouts.
