EDACafe Weekly Review October 16th, 2016


Next week, DVCon is once again in Europe, October 19-20 in Munich
. A marvelous agenda has been laid out for this year’s 2-day conference, including three keynoters that pretty much sum up the state of things in the industry here in 2016. If you want to know where to apply your resources – both human and material – over the next decade, look no farther than these three talks.

It’s a tiring trip from Silicon Valley to Bavaria, but the quality of these presentations, combined with the rest of the content at DVCon Europe, will make the trip well worth the effort. Hope you’re going.


Congrats to the ESD Alliance for continuing
to attend to myriad legal issues that surround the business of technology. On Tuesday, November 1st, the organization is hosting an evening panel on the Cadence campus entitled “Legal Steps to Maximize Your Exit Value.”

Vital topics slated for discussion include setting the proper price for intangible assets – in-house IP, strategic partnerships, and good will – and more prosaic issues such as the appropriate legal structures and pre-deal tax planning needed to help facilitate the acquisition. Most importantly, panel organizers are also promising you’ll learn “how to avoid giving it all back to your buyer later”.

Which is where our EDA M&A Hall of Fame comes in. There’s just no way this ESD Alliance panel can carry any weight with a battle-hardened EDA audience without the likes of Sanjay Srivastava, Rajeev Madhavan, Chris Rowen, and Kathryn Kranen sitting up at the front of the room.

LegalThe ESD Alliance’s Emerging Companies Committee has a great topic, excellent moderator and an impressive group of panelists for the second in our ongoing series of panels on legal issues affecting small and emerging technology companies.

“Legal Steps to Maximize your Exit Value” will be held Tuesday, November 1, from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. at Cadence’s corporate headquarters in San Jose, Calif.
