Perspectives on Mergers and Acquisitions with Jim Treleaven
A perfect storm of economic conditions has made acquisition the primary exit strategy for many firms. The general economic slowdown, the slowdown in the IPO market and the buildup of cash in larger firms has significantly accelerated M&A activity in the US and internationally. For the acquiring firms, acquisition is a means to accelerated growth during the economic slowdown and is often the most effective use of cash. For acquisition targets, acquisition is one of the most effective alternatives of all of the possible exit strategies. Today we will discuss the M&A process both before and after the event from the perspective of both the buy and the sell side. Rob Loewer, an attorney and Director of Finance and General Counsel at from National Railway Equipment Company represents the buy side. Stan Stec, a CPA and most recently M&A Integration Operations Executive at IBM represents the sell side.
