Full Description

 

The event is full and registration has been closed. We are unable to accept Walk-Ins.

 

Mergers and acquisitions have played an important role in the evolution of the energy industry.  The current market environment is certainly one which should encourage M&A activity

This will be a structured discussion based on the experience and opinion of one CEO.  Topics will include:

  • Where has M&A worked and not worked in support of corporate strategies.

  • What conditions do CEO’s & Boards of Directors need to consider as buyers.

  • What common mistakes are made in considering M&A.

Expect minimal PowerPoint and maximum dialogue.
