Please join us for a complimentary Private Equity and M&A roundtable discussion for corporate executives, private equity and venture capital investors, investment bankers, and professional advisors focused on middle market transactions.

Hear from industry leaders on the latest trends from 2019 and predictions for 2020, including:

  • What industries fared well in 2019? Were there any that did not do well? What is the outlook for 2020?
  • Which industry sectors are likely to encounter active M&A and investment interest in 2020?
  • Are good opportunities still hard to come by? What trends do M&A specialists see in sourcing opportunities in 2020?
  • Does the current economy create an advantage for the private equity buyer, the strategic buyer, or the alternative investment buyer?
  • How are purchasers and investors dealing with their concerns about the uncertain global economy?
  • What impact will the upcoming election have on M&A and investment activity as well as the general business community?
