Conference Overview
As commodity prices languish and capital-markets outlooks are lukewarm, private capital providers are reviewing their historic business plans and evaluating new options. Some have moved from buy/drill/flip to long-term value creation strategies. Many capital providers would like exits but are not satisfied with current options. They may be looking for longer term debt solutions beyond traditional bank capital, including second lien debt or capital from private transactions. They are also seeking a more active and receptive M&A market for their assets. Some capital providers are consolidating portfolio companies both within–and between–basins for greater efficiencies and streamlined G&A. Will they change structures and strategies to long-term growth models? Will they bring in new non-traditional capital to exit in innovative ways? Or will the M&A market offer new consolidation and exit opportunities by reinvigorating traditional large buyers or bringing other entrants to the market? This conference will explore these trends as seen from new and traditional capital providers, current operators who have accessed capital, and other industry experts.
