Pepper Hamilton is sponsoring the opening roundtable, "Global Dealmaking in 2013: Why The Best Strategists Will Dominate," on November 28 at The Deal Economy 2013 from 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.
When it comes to cross-border M&A, U.S. corporate dealmakers typically find that hurdles for macroeconomic, legal and execution risks are much higher than those they encounter on their home turf. In an uncertain global economy that continues to contain significant risks, it has become increasingly critical to have proven best practices through the acquisition cycle — from target selection to due diligence and especially integration, where so many deals fail. How are emerging economic and regulatory realities influencing the global dealmaking landscape? What are the best ways to access key growth markets such as Asia? Leading dealmakers share their roadmaps for execution and integration — where they are looking for growth and how they are identifying key challenges as they plan for more activity in 2013.
