Infocast, the leading business intelligence and networking events producer in the oil and gas industry, is set to host its inaugural Advanced Canadian Oil & Gas M&A Forum in Calgary, Alberta on October 17-18, 2012. The Canadian M&A market activity, which now represents 10% of all global mergers and acquisitions, moved an impressive 776 transactions worth $48.7 billion in Q1 2012 alone. The energy sector represented over 28% of those deals, valued at $13.8 billion.
With the strength of M&A opportunity in the energy sector comes challenges. Of course, M&A is always driven by corporate priorities, such as revenue growth, retaining current market position and the need to prioritize investments. But some drivers are a function of the current economy – for example, many smaller gas companies are caught in a credit crunch due to historically depressed gas prices certainly have different priorities when it comes to considering M&A.
With a burgeoning Canadian energy sector market, Infocast’s Advanced Canadian Oil & Gas M&A Forum, October 17-18, 2012, brings together key M&A specialists to assess the current landscape for mergers and acquisitions in the Canadian oil and gas sector, evaluate corporate priorities and acquisition opportunities, and gain an edge in a booming market.
