Bureau van Dijk (BvD), one of the world’s leading providers of business and M&A intelligence, will be exhibiting and presenting at the Alliance of Merger and Acquisition Advisors (AM&AA) 2013 Winter Conference in Miami, FL, January 14 – 17. BvD will be leading a strategic session on the challenges, misconceptions, and advantages of conducting cross-border deals.
Lisa Wright, managing director for BvD’s M&A products globally, will be speaking and moderating a session on conducting M&A deals internationally. The session, titled “Expanding Your Target List: Unlocking the Misconceptions of Doing Deals across Borders”, will explore what information you can reasonably expect to find on deals and companies globally, and what resources are available to help address the challenges of conducting international deals. Wright has been working in the information and M&A industry for roughly twenty years and has extensive, global M&A knowledge. Wright also writes a regular blog on BvD’s M&A Portal (mandaportal.com), providing insight on current deals and emerging trends.
The AM&AA 2013 Winter Conference was designed to reflect the opportunity for all who help drive performance, value, and deal making in the middle market in the United States and around the globe, to foster meaningful connections, education and exchange.
