May 26, 2004 – FIRST STRATEGIC ACQUIRORS FORUM IS HELD IN NEW YORK
Leading M&A practitioners from 29 countries met with seven acquisitive international groups, in New York, for the first ever Global Strategic Acquirors Forum. “The event provided an opportunity for acquisitive groups to discuss their global acquisition strategies with M&A advisors from around the world, all in one day, all in one place”, said Greg Robertson, chairman of the Strategic Acquirors Forum and President of TM Capital Corp., a member M&A International Inc.
Seven invited groups, including Fedders Corp., Hitachi and RPM International, met with M&A International Inc. members firms, with representatives from Tokyo to Toronto and Sydney to Seattle, to discuss the latest M&A trends and valuations, and to consider acquisition targets across five continents.
The highly structured format optimised the invitees’ valuable time and was seen as the Forum’s most distinctive attraction. “For strategic acquirors, the ability to discuss international acquisition objectives with advisors from all corners of the globe, in one location and in one day allows real, tangible progress to be made” commented Mark Lerner, chairman of M&A International Inc.
Following the success of the first Strategic Acquirors Forum in New York, M&A International Inc. has confirmed that the event will be held in Amsterdam in October 2004, in conjunction with their M&A Mid-Market Forum.
