Abstract

M&A is key to strategic growth. Deals in the chemicals sector or conducted by chemicals companies exceeded $100B in 2015 and even tough 2016 shows a lower deal value, several large deals are expected to be completed in 2017.
A robust M&A strategy should strengthen existing businesses and, or, reduce the company’s earnings volatility whilst trading off other capital investments. High multiples for top companies and high investor expectations further increase the pressure on realizing value from M&A. There are some important lessons that can be learned from leading Private Equity firms who have hit upon a formula for value creation to generate large returns.

This presentation will discuss the market reaction to chemicals M&A deals. It will cover how the best acquirers approach their M&A strategy as an extension of the growth strategy, then pressure-test the thesis about value creation, focus on integration and demonstrate better operations to the acquired firm.
Two highly successful advisors will discuss key disciplines that companies could implement with a PE approach to create operating value: identifying and delivering the full potential of the company, accelerating performance, focusing relentlessly on outcomes, harnessing of talent and, ultimately, making equity sweat by embedding a results-oriented culture and mindset.

Join us for a discussion on chemicals M&A and on how you can take the lessons from PE firms to derive Monday-morning actions to realize operating value.
