An SNL Energy National Conference • January 28-29, 2014 • New York, NY
Don't miss the pre-conference workshop on Monday, January 27, presented by ScottMadden, Inc., building on their semi-annual Energy Industry Update. See the agenda for details.
While mergers and acquisitions among regulated utilities have become less frequent as the universe has contracted, a broader look at the sector, encompassing non-regulated generation, retail energy marketing and other related businesses, reveals a steady flow of deal activity. M&A continues to be an important part of many companies’ strategies, and pressure to grow has never been greater, resulting in a high volume of asset acquisitions and considerable interest in merger opportunities that arise. Much of the activity is coming from auctions, new business lines and alternative generation sources. Divestitures also have been a big driver of asset level activity, as companies seek to re-balance their business mixes. Throughout the Symposium, you'll gain critical insight into how M&A can be used to support your growth strategy.
Please join us at this unique gathering and enjoy the opportunity to meet with colleagues, clients and advisors in a collegial atmosphere. You'll return to your business armed with actionable insights from across the utility sector.
We look forward to seeing you.
