The Next Drivers For Corporate Growth
IN JOINT VENTURE WITH
Are M&A the best way to create growth in the current context?
The recent figures* tend to confirm the M&A revival with global cross-border M&A volume at $73.4bn YTD, almost double the $37.4bn announced in 2013 at the same time - this is the highest volume since 2008. The contrast with the recess of domestic M&A (down 3%) clearly shows that the quest is not only for size, but for greater margins and leads to overseas deals - with the emerging markets (Asia, South America, Africa) as an ever growing destination.
At the 2nd M&A Europe conference, taking place this spring in Frankfurt, over 25 corporate M&A and strategy officers will analyse the most recent deals in the light of these trends, in order to excerpt the state-of-the-art strategy and dealmaking key lessons for the current economy.
This major European initiative brought to you by a joint-venture between Frankfurter Allgemeine Forum (Germany) and Premier Cercle (France) is organized one whole day in a 5 stars environment, divided into plenary session and followed by 2 streams of in-depth workshops covering sectorial issues (with a focus on buoyant sectors of M&A such as TMT, Luxury, Retail) and a focus on crucial steps in the M&A process (due diligence, financing, integration).
The conference program is completed by a networking program, based on peer-to-peer appointments scheduled ahead of the conference and on the spot, through a "social networking" platform specially designed for this event.
