Argyle Executive Forum hosts more than 130 executives in daylong session on global energy opportunities

New York, NY (May 26, 2009) – How do regulation and the financial crisis impact the Energy business? What opportunities exist for cross border deals?

Approximately 130 C-level executives, board members, investors and analysts will hold candid discussions on sector-influencing opportunities in the Energy industry on Thursday, June 11, in New York City.

The 2009 Deal Making in the Energy Sector forum presented by Argyle Executive Forum and Wharton Private Equity Partners will address a number of topics such as current and future energy investment allocation, the impact of mergers and acquisitions, smart grids and creating an optimal fuel mix.

Scheduled speakers include:

Nick Akins, EVP, American Electric Power
Lee Boothby, President, Newfield Exploration Company
William Featherston, Managing Director, UBS
Charles Hinckley, CEO, CCHinkley Company LLC
Bradford T. Nordholm, CEO, Starwood Energy Group
Geoffrey Rochwarger, CEO, IDT Energy
Brian Spector, Managing Director, BP North America

"The upcoming conference will be a gathering of the Who's Who in the energy investing sector," said Bruce Schulman, who leads Allied Capital’s energy investment focus and is vice chairman of Wharton Private Equity Partners. "As with any Argyle Executive Forum, the attendees will walk away with critical perspectives of what changes and trends are to come in the energy industry. Given the recent volatility, driven by dramatic drops in oil and natural gas prices, this symposium will provide needed backdrop for how and when to invest in the energy sector."
