The Role of a CFO in Mergers & Acquisitions

Once a company has narrowed down a list of counterparties (either potential buyers, investors or acquisition targets), or has entered the transaction phase, the CFO’s role transforms into chief negotiator – making sure the company achieves the best deal possible. Both seller and buyer want to maximize synergy to make sure they’re extracting the most a deal can financially offer. It’s critical during this stage that CFOs from both sides maintain open communication about acquisition conditions, growth potentials, and other financial targets that will make the deal a success.

As these negotiations progress and the end of a transaction nears, the CFO must simultaneously create a comprehensive integration plan that will be ready for execution the moment a deal ends.

90,000 RSU's awarded to Holt, transferable upon change of control? $200k bonus payable NOW?

$140M ATM to show a stronger balance sheet to potential partners and customers?

Waymo to integrate new LIDAR into the autonomous driving system for Level 4 autonomous driving ?

https://waymo.com/joinus/3218427/

  • Design and implement data and control flow needed to integrate new LIDAR into the autonomous driving system
  • Develop, deploy, and optimize custom hardware drivers 
  • Develop novel calibration processes involving multiple sensors and actuation stages in the loop
  • Analyze data collected from sensor systems, and develop tools to help do so
  • Support sensor manufacturing by customizing existing systems to improve test integration, assembly tracking, and reporting pipelines
  • FPGA programming and supporting ASIC development teams



What i found additionally interesting is Microvision has two new software development requirement opened up. And those requirements uses "CUDA" which is supported only on Nvidia GPUs

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CUDA

Experience with GPU Acceleration and frameworks, such as Cuda, OpenCL, or OpenGL.
