Recently, I moderated a panel at the COMPTEL Plus fall conference in Orlando Florida. The topic — “Show Me the Money: Exploring the Market for M&As and Financing for Growth”. A distinguished panel of industry insiders discussed the state of financial markets relative to M&A, valuation, and growth/exit strategies for telecommunications companies.
Panelists from M/C Partners, GE Capital, Waller Capital and Tech Valley Communications provided valuable insight on recent acquisition trends, current debt markets and valuation drivers. Our audience actively participated in a lively Q&A session after brief summary presentations from each of our panelists. Here’s a link to our session presentation http://www.alpheus.net/pdfs/comptel-show-me-the-money-session-slides-sept-2013.pdf. For other session materials, visit the COMPTEL Plus site at http://www.comptelplus.org/2013fallarchivedsessions.
As always, COMPTEL Plus is a great place for competitive carriers to network, learn about the latest innovations and most importantly, conduct business. Our industry is greatly strengthened from face-to-face meetings at the conference and personal relationships built over the years.
