Finding the A&D Sweet Spot
Building a sustainable advantage

While the world waits for oil prices to stabilize, the A&D community is lining up billions of dollars to invest when the time is right. Whether or not recent multi-billion dollar deals with Noble Energy and Shell will signal the next wave of mergers and acquisitions remains to be seen. But one thing is for sure – BD executives are on the search for deals that give their companies a strategic advantage in North America's prolific plays. And larger, well-capitalized companies are poised to leverage their equity position to acquire smaller, financially distressed companies. Where will you be when the next wave of deals takes place?

This September, the 14th annual A&D Strategies and Opportunities conference and workshop will unite 500+ BD executives, A&D professionals and industry analysts in Dallas for two days of networking, deal making and interactive conference sessions. Widely regarded as a catalyst for initiating some of the industry's biggest deals, this is the ONE event you can't afford to miss! Click here to view photos from the 2014 event.

Tour De Force: Tall City Achieves Its 2015 Exit

The deal marks the final realization of the company’s goals.
