WHARTON M&A WEST 2013 – How to thrive in M&A and Leveraged Buyouts
Thursday, June 6, 2013

The Wharton Club of Northern California and Wharton San Francisco are proud to present the first annual M&A Summit at Wharton San Francisco. Come learn from an all-star group of M&A leaders who have driven more than $500B in M&A transactions and hear why all companies including venture backed early stage companies should now be paying attention to how M&A has transformed the liquidity landscape.
M&A drives the majority of liquidity for venture and non-venture backed companies, and Silicon Valley companies have never been in more demand. Learn from top M&A leaders as they discuss:
  • How corporate development with large cash positions are competing with Private Equity as they battle for the best businesses.
  • Where will the most deal flow and liquidity in 2013/2014 come from — IPO, M&A or Acqui-Hire. 
  • How to position your business to best take advantage of these liquidity trends.
