Panel: Business Transformations: Mergers and Acquisitions, Development, and Restructuring
In this session, you will hear from three leaders who have effectively led a successful transformation of their company. Currently, there is an expanding range of activities driving transformation opportunities in the oil and gas sector – examples including spin-offs, mergers and acquisitions. Mergers and acquisitions allow companies to create value through mutual collaborations. In the oil and gas industry, mergers and acquisitions take place due to many strategic business motives that mainly revolve around improving the economical or technological standing of the company. However, some are a means for survival during a recession or an effort to gain a larger market share. Often, divestitures or spin-offs may occur if a business unit is deemed redundant after a merger or acquisition or as a technique to unlock shareholder value. This session will analyze the strategies and opportunities involved in merger, acquisition, and spin-off activities and discuss their advantages and challenges.
