TOPIC: How Energy and Chemical Companies Inadvertently Destroy Shareholder Value During Deals, Eric Dietert, Vice President and Partner, Pilko & Associates

Pilko’s observation has been that a majority of large energy and chemical companies needlessly destroy shareholder value by how they manage environmental risks and liabilities during acquisitions; divestitures; joint ventures; and mergers. As a result, their transactions fail to deliver the financial results that were promised.

However, there are opportunities these companies have to create shareholder value by managing environmental issues intelligently during deals.These techniques are an important resource to companies who are growing by acquiring businesses and assets as well as companies who are planning to prune their current portfolio.

This discussion will focus on how leading companies are actively managing this issue to help ensure realization of deal value.

LOCATION: The meeting will take place at the Federal Reserve Bank located at 1801 Allen Parkway in Houston, TX. For directions, please use following the link: http://www.dallasfed.org/fed/direct_hou.pdf. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. for networking. Lunch is served at 12:00 noon in the Brazos Room.
