Sullivan will speak on “New Market Drivers for Today’s M&A”, and will draw upon his experience in the mergers and acquisitions world to discuss the current round of deals and what he sees as potential opportunities in the near-term. 

Sullivan will touch on how recessions drive M&A activity; what challenges are faced by private equity companies in market downturns vs. upturns; the future dynamic of off-shore manufacturing that have been held at bay by a strong U.S. dollar; how the financial structure of a merger deal can affect the R&D and product development resources; and consideration to product portfolio mix and rationalization to avoid overlaps or loss of customers and profits. 

The segment will be moderated by Mike Osenga, president, Diesel & Gas Turbine Publications.
