Conference will open with a panel of Energy Sector Experts on the current state of the Energy Industry, including prognostications on the short-term and long-term outlook for the industry. Almost one-year into the Trump Administration, how extensive has de-regulation been, and what impact is it having? What legislative initiatives or regulatory changes remain on the industry’s wish-list? What effect will different geo-political developments have on the energy sector? What should investors be focusing on when contemplating making investments in the energy sector? What are the bright-spots for the industry, and how can producers, suppliers and service providers prosper in the current environment?
What is the outlook for consolidations and roll-ups in the Energy sector and related industries? Which sectors (upstream, midstream or downstream) will lead deal-flow? With traditional lenders on the sidelines, what role will Private Equity, Hedge Funds and other non-bank alternative sources of capital play? How can the value of portfolio companies be improved prior to a transaction?
Energy-related transactions (M&A, loan restructuring, etc.) present unique issues of due diligence, valuation, taxation and regulatory compliance, and more. This panel of energy transaction services experts will discuss the key issues that must be addressed before, during and after the deal.
Upstream, mid-stream and downstream companies in the energy sector have become extensively leveraged and, with oil prices stagnating in the mid-to-low $40s, addressing this issue calls for creative solutions. How can investment bankers, private capital providers, asset-backed lenders and others deploy their expertise and capital to address distressed energy debt situations in the months ahead?
