The government market has seen an uptick in merger and acquisition activities over the past year. In this Power Breakfast we’ll dive into what is driving this activity by talking to the dealmakers themselves.

Senior executives from leading companies will describe why M&A activities are so important in today’s market. This will include discussions on what makes for an attractive acquisition target, such as important technical capabilities, customer sets and contract vehicles as well as why culture comes up so often when discussing acquisitions.

We’ll also look at the other side of the coin – why sell and how do you prepare your company to be acquired.

Market analysts and M&A experts also will lend their insights into the threads that connect many of these deals and these dealmakers.

You’ll come away from this event with a better understanding about the forces driving these deals and how the changes are shaping the competitive landscape.
