Join us at The Dealâ€™s annual forecast and review of the M&A market to hear the expert insights and meet the leading professionals so you can take advantage of the best M&A opportunities in 2009. M&A activity has ebbed in 2008, with the retreat of the private equity investor putting an even brighter spotlight on the strategic acquirer and the foreign acquirer. With strong balance sheets and advantageous exchange rates, how are these market participants shaping the future landscape? As the availability of credit remains constrained, what opportunities does this present to buyout and strategic acquirers alike? How should they capitalize on them? Will the M&A market in 2009 see more of the same? What other issues loom on the horizon? What will the pressure points be for buyers and sellers? Join The Deal for the industryâ€™s premier event for M&A trends and forecasting in North America and meet the leading strategic acquirers, investment bankers, private equity partners and other alternative investment professionals to debate the opportunities and challenges that will present themselves in the deal economy.
