Industry Experts and New Direction Partners Peter Schaefer and Jeff Riback Share Expertise at Print CEO Forum

Lexington, Kentucky USA -- Industry experts Peter J. Schaefer and Jeff Riback, Partners of New Direction Partners, will be presenting at the second annual Print CEO Forum scheduled for October 2nd and 3rd, 2010, in Chicago. Registration details can be found at http://printceoforum.com.

"While the number of mergers and acquisitions in the printing industry spiked in the late 1990s, we are still seeing in the range of 50 deals annually in a contracting industry, and the number appears to be on the rise again," said Schaefer. "Certainly, the size of many of the deals has increased and there is more focus on specialty companies."

Schaefer will address the following topics during the session:

  • Current Trends in Printing M&A - EBITDA multiples, tuck-ins, cashless mergers
  • What Determines Value?
  • Consolidation - Why It Is Attractive to Buyers
  • What's Attractive (and What's Not) to Buyers

In addition, Riback will share his experiences in owning and running a printing company. He will present, from an owners perspective, the process for acquiring or selling a company and what you need to focus on to have a successful transaction, including:

  • Strategy for the transaction
  • Identifying target companies
  • Conducting a preliminary review
  • Valuation
  • Negotiation
  • Due diligence
  • Financing
  • Go or no go decision making

"We are extremely pleased that New Direction Partners is partnering with us to present this very important educational session," said Randy Davidson, President, WhatTheyThink. "Attendees will be able to benefit from hearing what Schaefer and Riback have to say about the role of mergers and acquisitions in today's unsettled economic climate and how such actions may be the answer for some businesses."
