Global Plastics Consolidation: Strategies for Independents to Survive and Thrive
Tuesday, September 17, 2019
Utilizing 34 years in mergers and acquisitions, Tom Blaige will discuss exit strategies for companies in the plastics sector. Successful deal making is both an Artistic and Scientific process and remains crucial to success in today’s rapidly consolidating market. The “Science” will include M&A Trends, consolidation trends, headline deals in plastics and Case studies. The “Art” will review maximizing value, a process which takes place both before and during sale, as well as available transaction options. He will cover exit strategies as well as how to maximize value and growth as discussed in the Blaige proprietary Seventeen Year Plastics and Packaging Mergers and Acquisitions Consolidation Study. On average, approximately 70% of 2001’s top 50 plastics and packaging companies in each sector have undergone a change of ownership or been eliminated, thus large consolidators are making it more difficult for small and mid-cap (independent) processors to survive and thrive. In summary, Mr. Blaige will reveal valuable strategies designed to help company owners understand how to navigate and succeed in today’s mergers and acquisitions environment.
