The 2008-2009 economic downturn had a significant impact on global mergers and acquisitions. This session will give firm owners the tools they need to continue to build value in their firms, as well as to negotiate deals under new expectations of risk and returns. The session will provide insight into firm valuations and deal structuring, discuss underlying business factors that impact value, and review the impact on industry consolidation trends and how engineering firms can best position themselves to successfully close deals in the new environment. In addition, the speaker will explain the procedures and terms of the merger and acquisition process and the impact from the economic downturn, and draw on real life experiences to provide a better understanding of this subject.
