  • Atlanta, GA (1888PressRelease) December 21, 2012 - Over 200 attendees met for four days of deal making and education. The twice annual conference was a perfect setting for M&A intermediaries and PEGs to network, socialize and explore opportunities.

    "It was great to see old friends and new faces in Las Vegas. The conference (as usual) was a productive event for KLH and time/money well spent. Thank you all for a terrific year and we look forward to continuing to contribute in every way possible." said Kyle Madden, with KLH Capital.

    "By attending the M&A Source Conference in Las Vegas, I was able to return to my firm with several marketing ideas, that will help me grow my market," stated Chet Walden, President of Walden Businesses, an Atlanta, Georgia based M&A firm.

    This was the M&A Source's 40th consecutive conference of education, workshops and panel discussions and covered the most important topics for M&A intermediaries. Topics such as: "Working Private Equity & Successfully," "Take the Winning Track Make Deals Happen," "Letter of Intent - Setting the Stage for a Deal while Improving the Odds for Closing," "Structuring a Successful Deal in Spite of Taxmaggedon." These and other topics were introduced, as well as some of the best M&A tools of the trade. Many case studies were given, which generated healthy Q&A sessions.

    "With our market improving, the conference was the foundation I need to rekindle relationships, compare notes, and find out what others are doing to get clients and close more deals. I am currently in a LOI as a direct result of the Private Equity Expo." said John Zayac, CEO of International Business Group, Ltd.

    There were also several education courses for CE credit that covered valuable topics including "Solving Key Issues in M&A Representations and Warranties," "Opportunities for Success with Distressed Companies," "How to Value a Customer List and How to Determine Ownership Positions When Two Companies Combine Operations," "Fundamentals of Distribution Businesses in M&A," and "The Subtle Art of Educating the Client."

Tronson, CBI, CPA with AdvantEdge Advisors.

    "I found the M&A Source Fall Conference to be tremendously valuable. The private equity relationships, the peer networking, and the education program provided an attractive return on investment." said Bryce DeGroot with Compass Advisors.
