Dear Clients, Friends and Conference Participants,
On September 22, 2020, MuSaC and McDermott together hosted the 10th annual Munich M&A and Private Equity Conference (MuMAC), the first ever by video stream and only during the forenoon—for pandemic reasons—welcoming approximately 450 participants representing financial investors, family offices, operating companies and corporate finance professionals.
The lively discussions and engaged participation of the panelists helped to make this year’s MuMAC a great event. Our keynote speaker and famous economist Dr. Daniel Stelter gave insightful remarks on “Coronomics: Impact on the Transactional Landscape”. The conference saw thought-provoking discussions on the influence of the pandemic on the economic, political, financial and legal developments in the M&A and private equity markets. The topics that were covered included “The M&A and Private Equity Market in 2020,” “Opportunities in a Distressed Environment under COVID-19” and “Value Preservation and Transaction Tools in Critical Times”.
We are very thankful to our co-sponsor PwC, our conference partners Acquinex, AlixPartners, Datasite, Helbling, HWF Partners, SGP Schneider Geiwitz and VTC, our supporters Lincoln and Oaklins and our keynote speaker Dr. Stelter.
We are grateful to our various panel participants for their contributions and discussions, which are described in detail in the following pages. It is remarkable how optimistic many of our panelists are for the future. All embraced the spirit of resilience emblazed on our courtesy face mask “Going the Distance, Together”.
We are happy to confirm that MuMAC will return in 2021, will celebrate its 11th anniversary and will be hosted at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof—hopefully again as an in-person meeting and conference, and possibly simultaneously streamed by video (a hybrid conference) with a stimulating side program on the eve of MuMAC and an evening after the conference at Oktoberfest.
MuMAC 2021 will once again feature detailed and stimulating discussions on developments in the M&A and private equity world, as the experts on the panels will discuss the recent developments and what the future may bring.
We invite you to note the date and location of next year’s conference, Tuesday, September 21, 2021, at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof, and look forward to seeing you then. Stay safe and healthy! Until then, if we can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
