The 2014 A&D Workshop also gave attendees a unique opportunity to test their negotiation skills through the ever-popular "Let's Make a Deal" Lab and the A&D Shark Tank. Both hands-on sessions allowed participants to practice today's most-successful A&D tactics in a fun competitive environment.

The conference may be over, but the conversation isn't. Find out what other attendees are saying about the 2014 A&D Strategies and Opportunities conference and workshop. We would love to hear about your experience too!

Germany’s Siemens Pays Steep Price For Oilfield Equipment Maker Dresser-Rand
Dresser-Rand Group Inc. (NYSE: DRC), an E&P equipment giant and oilfield equipment maker, announced late Sept. 21 it would merge with the German engineering firm Siemens. Siemens will pay $7.6 billion in a merger agreement, or $83 per share in cash for the U.S. equipment maker including assumption of debt. The share price represents a premium of 37.4% over Dresser-Rand's closing share price of $60.42 on July 16, the day before speculation in the press appeared regarding interest in Dresser-Rand. Months later, Dresser-Rand’s closing price of $79.91 per share on Sept. 19 is slightly below the agreed upon transaction price. The acquisition complements Siemens' existing offerings, notably for the global oil and gas industry and for distributed power generation. In 2013 Dresser-Rand generated $3 billion, had 8,100 employees, 14 manufacturing facilities in eight countries and 49 service centers including six engineering and R&D centers.
