Fourteen years ago, Larry Glasgow channeled his passion for instituting best practices for mergers and acquisitions by co-founding the University of Texas School of Law – Mergers and Acquisitions Institute, the nation’s premier private M&A conference. At this year’s conference, Larry opened the two-day CLE event with a panel discussion on “Deal Driver Differences Between Private Equity and Strategic Players.”
From the difference between how private equity and strategic players do deals to the “why” and “how” the two behave, panelists David J. Colletti Jr., 7-Eleven, Inc.; Scott B. Crofton, Sullivan & Cromwell LLP; Kirsten J. Jensen, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP; and Steve Yoost, Trive Capital, shared their individual takes on the topic.
