Ten years later, Southeastern M&A and Private Equity Forum continues to lead
On October 2, 2014, the Southeastern M&A/Private Equity Forum will be held at the TWELVE Hotel Atlantic Station in Atlanta, GA, celebrating a decade of insight into M&A trends, networking and education. Attendees typically include corporate counsel, strategic sellers, investment bankers, M&A lawyers and business entrepreneurs.
Topics this year include a look at the state of the M&A and private equity market, the growing use of “covenant-loose” loans, an analysis of recent comments by the Delaware Court of Chancery, a rapid-fire session on in-house counsel, and more.
“What excites me most about this year’s forum is the fact that we are beginning to see the lingering effects of the recession subside,” said Michael Hollingsworth II, managing partner of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough’s Atlanta office and co-chair of the firm’s Mergers and Acquisitions Group. “In fact, according to MergerMarket’s Southeast M&A Trend Report, transactions in the Southeast for the first-half of 2014 are up nearly 40 percent compared to one year ago. While things are definitely improving, firms are still acting prudently, and this year’s Forum will offer a glimpse into that mindset.”
Over the years, the conference has hosted panelists who are leaders in their respective industries, and this year will be no different. Added Hollingsworth, “I am pleased to share the stage with my colleagues from Thomson Reuters and firms from around the region, and beyond.”
With M&A activity heating-up this year in health care and pharmaceuticals, IT, financial technology, industrial and chemical, medical and biotech, where will we see growth in 2015? Join us at the Forum and let us know what you think. Register here.
