PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., Oct. 3, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iiBIG presents the Investment and M&A Opportunities in Energy, scheduled for December 6, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Houston in Houston, TX. Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the energy industry are expected to increase over the next year and into the future. The rapid increase and interest in natural gas, power, oil and gas and gas shale exploration are generating investment interest and the need for growth capital for middle-market suppliers and other companies serving key roles in developing this crucial domestic energy market. Finally, cross-border deals are picking up for both U.S. based companies looking abroad and for foreign investors seeking opportunities in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
The executive speaking faculty – representing executives and entrepreneurs, from energy producers, servicers, and suppliers and investors, M&A deal-makers, and other financial consultants – will discuss the current status of M&A in the energy industry and provide insight on where it is heading on a national and global level. A solid cross section of experts will share insights on where this sector is – and where it is going – in terms of investment and growth opportunities. Experienced financial executives will share innovative financing mechanisms, provide lessons learned from recent transactions, review the basics of due diligence issues that are unique to this sector, and provide expert intelligence on cross-border transaction opportunities.
