Tom Stokes, Senior Managing Director – Evercore | Topic: Semiconductor and Electronics Mergers and Acquisitions Environment
Merger and acquisition activity in the semiconductor and electronics industries has been at an unprecedented level in the last five years. While activity has moderated from these unprecedented levels in the last 18 months, we are still seeing a steady flow of activity.
What is driving this activity today? How are companies in the sector viewing their acquisition strategy? Where are we seeing most activity today? What are the impediments to M&A in the current regulatory climate? Could we see a return to cross-border activity between the US and China? What can we expect going forward?
These are some of the questions that Tom Stokes, Senior Managing Director of Evercore, will discuss in his presentation. Evercore is a leading independent global investment bank, founded in 1995 with approximately 1,750 employees, and has advised on over $3 trillion of announced M&A transactions. Tom has 20+ years of relevant experience and joined Evercore after a 13+ year career at Goldman, Sachs & Co.
