The 2007 Western M&A Forum


Corporate and Mergers + Acquisitions

San Francisco


What You Need to Know in Today's Active Deal Climate

With deal volume expected to surpass record levels in 2007, the market appetite for both public and private company acquisitions seems insatiable. California’s technology, media and entertainment, and financial services sectors stand poised for an up-tick in deal activity this year. Major themes include a swell in private equity buyouts, increased shareholder activism, and market consolidation by large strategic acquirers.

Deal synergy issues, valuation tactics, and regulatory pronouncements will continue to shape the way deals are crafted and executed in the future. Against this dynamic backdrop, litigation prevention, disclosure, and stock option backdating issues stand to affect deal strategy and structure in 2007 and beyond.

Learn the Latest Strategies from the Leaders

The Western M&A Forum is a unique program designed to bring together leading players in the deal community who are active participants on the front lines of many of the recent headline deals and who are helping to craft strategies for transactions still under formulation. An action-packed day of interdisciplinary panel discussions will focus on how strategies need to be shaped in light of current valuation, pricing, and fiduciary duty trends, as well as shareholder activism, and today’s “hot button” issues.
