CEO Dealmakers Summit

Presented by Chief Executive magazine and Chief Executive Network

U.S. CEOs are aggressively looking to mergers and acquisitions (M&A) to achieve consolidation or expansion goals in 2013.  According to a January 2013 survey by PwC, 42% of U.S. CEOs plan to complete a domestic deal this year – up significantly from the 30% who said they completed a deal in 2012.

All the fundamentals for a robust deal market are in place, with low interest rates, eager banks and over $1 trillion in cash on corporate balance sheets.

Whether you are an active buyer, a possible seller or simply need to keep up on the competition and the state of M&A, the CEO Dealmakers Summit is the place to connect with peer CEOs and other top dealmakers.

This Summit will provide unique insights into the trends, tactics and tools being used by innovative dealmakers that you can adopt to grow shareholder value or gain liquidity via mergers, acquisitions, strategic joint ventures, recapitalizations and other advanced financing techniques.   The focus will be on best practices that you can use to take advantage of today’s unique environment.
