CEOs to Meet in Chicago to Discuss M&A Growth Opportunities Despite Sluggish Economy

Share Article

Deal making activity is heating up again as CEOs take advantage of record low interest rates and available capital to complete Merger and Acquisition (M&A) transactions and/or restructure their capital structures. Mid-Market CEOs will convene in Chicago in June to collaborate and share ideas with each other, bankers and private equity investors at Chief Executive Group's Dealmakers Summit.

CEOs Share Ideas And Help One Another

“ There are thousands of mid-market M&A deals taking place right now” stated conference co-chair Wayne Cooper

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. 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.

“Mid-Market M&A market is very active now. Beyond the mega-deals like the Berkshire Hathaway acquisition of H.J. Heinz and the Office Depot/Office Max merger, there are thousands of mid-market deals taking place right now,” stated conference co-chairman Wayne Cooper from Chief Executive Magazine.

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 2013 CEO Dealmakers Summit is the place to connect with peer CEOs and other top dealmakers. Middle market CEOs and capital investors (private equity partners and lenders) are invited to attend this event June 13-14 in Chicago.
The CEO Dealmakers 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.
