Press release from the issuing company
Premier industry event to focus on latest M & A trends impacting the United States Graphic Communications industry, being held on March 19, 2020, in New Jersey.
Amherst, N.Y. – Mergers and acquisitions remain one of the key topics for the Graphic Communications industry. In an environment where organic growth can be challenging, many companies continue to look for acquisition opportunities that will get them into new markets, expand their geographic footprint, or help them win a new key customer. Additionally, entrepreneurs or private equity are finding printing companies attractive as acquisition targets as well. On the seller side, a sale to the right purchaser at the right time has become a popular exit strategy for many owners, while others utilize a strategic merger to spread expenses across a broader portfolio of customers or services and to achieve much needed economies of scale.
In making this announcement, PIA President Tim Freeman commented, “Whether you are a buyer, a seller, or neither, you likely will be some day, and you need to have the latest information on the M&A front to be prepared for the future. That’s exactly the information that will be presented at the 2020 Printing Industry Mergers & Acquisitions Symposium!”
This program is scheduled for March 19, 2020, at the Newark Liberty International Airport Marriott. For complete details and to register, visit https://pialliance.org/events/printing-industry-mergers-acquisitions-symposium/.
The following, and more, will be covered during the program:

GAA President Melissa Jones remarked, “The Newark Liberty International Airport Marriott was chosen as a location for this program because it is easily accessible via air from most of North America as well as by train and auto for attendees located along the Northeast Corridor.”
Confirmed presenters include Paul Reilly, Peter Schaffer, Jim Russell, and Tom Williams from New Direction Partners (NDP), the premier Mergers & Acquisitions firm in the graphic communications industry. New Direction Partners has had a hand in over 300 mergers and acquisitions in the printing and packaging industries since 1979.
Also slated to present:
• Larry Gilroy, President of Gilroy Kernan & Gilroy (GKG), one of the leading insurance consultancies in the Northeast.
Additional presentations are planned during this highly interactive symposium, including several panel discussions and ample networking opportunities, with a full agenda to be announced in November. The goal of the event is for attendees to leave with actionable ideas that will help better position their businesses for a profitable future.
