04.27.15

D CEO recently discussed the world of mergers and acquisitions in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, calling 2014 the “year of the energy deal.” Energy transactions in North Texas, which totaled approximately $28.6 billion, outstripped all other M&A industry sectors last year. While experts believe that energy spending will slow in 2015, those lower commodity prices continue to benefit other M&A sectors.

Gardere Partner Chris Converse, chair of the Firm’s Securities and Corporate Governance Team, told the publication that the Firm is seeing a number of manufacturing companies in play. “That’s probably part of a larger nationwide trend in which capital has been flowing back into the U.S. manufacturing sector due to a variety of factors, including lower energy and transportation costs.”

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
