Strategic M&A: Acquiring Smart

Why this Event now

Many US and European companies have accumulated large cash balances available for acquiring new businesses. Financial sponsors also have the potential to boost global transactions, with private equity firms sitting on a record US$1.1 trillion in uninvested capital.

Rise in cross border mergers is adding new dimension in terms of strategy diversity and complexities involved in traditional M&A processes.  In pursuit of higher value creation trough synergies and with companies portraying higher transformative potentials, M&A has become an inevitable part for an effective growth strategy.

Last year there was new wave of M&A driven by innovation and disruptive deals. Companies now focusing on buying digital technologies to enhance digital capabilities or making strategic acquisition of different companies (lines/products) to improve portfolio/services/business.

Leading an M&A can represent the highlight of a whole career. This forum is a road map to strategic deal making. Event will cover most effective strategies in Identification, Valuation, Talent retention and Deal Integration I innovation focused acquisition. This event is a MUST ATTEND event for any M&A professional!
