M&A: Doing Deals For Technology Buyers

KPMG (Santa Clara)
June 18, 2012

Have you been hearing about the increasing number of recent M&A deals in the press from leading players, including some of Silicon Valley's largest technology buyers? As the market for deal-making heats up in 2012, we wanted to bring together a panel to discuss what we think will be the macro trends for the rest of 2012.

Where should acquirers focus their spend? What should buyers expect? How should these deals impact your additional investment activities and strategic planning process? Gain insight on how to better identify acquisition targets, run a more efficient process and enhance value. Join leading Silicon Valley decision-makers for an in-depth discussion and a chance to catch up with your friends and colleagues.

This program is intended for director-level and above executives from Silicon Valley public and private companies as well as principals from private equity, growth equity, venture capital and financial advisory firms.
