The breakfast series is designed for business owners, executives, and private equity principals who wish to understand the current market dynamics and key drivers of value in the Defense & Government Services market. Further, the program provides unique insight on the elements necessary to execute an outstanding deal through the lens of several esteemed key guest panelists, dealmakers, and advisors from the industry communicated through an interactive, moderated panel format.

Part II: Preparing For Your Transaction in the New Environment

Please join us for Part II of our four part series on Mastery of the Deal.  Each Part features a lively, moderated panel discussion with key industry executives who are among the most active in the M&A markets. The M&A markets are cooling now and understanding how to complete your transaction in the new economic environment will be critical. Whether you are a buyer or seller, critical issues will remain in flux in 2009.  In Part II, the panel of experts will provide their opinions on tax planning for the new environment, the due diligence process, the new accounting rules for M&A effective as of January 1, 2009, and how to prepare the company for a sale in the current environment. 

The event will lead off with a special presentation on budgetary trends and constraints, both in defense and in the broader federal marketplace.
