Cross-Border IT M&A Conference to Be Held October 3rd in Bangalore; Offers Rare Insight into How India's IT Companies Can Capture Value -- martinwolf M&A Advisors, Grant Thornton India LLP, HSBC India and Khaitan & Co. LLP Will Partner for Keynote and Panel on Navigating Cross-Border Transactions as India's IT Markets Mature
 


Bangalore, India, September 12, 2012 -- India's IT and IT Services companies will have a rare opportunity to learn from M&A experts on how to capture enterprise value through cross-border transactions at an exclusive conference entitled: Cross-Border M&A: Capturing Value for Indian IT Firms. The conference will be held on October 3, 2012 at the ITC Windsor in Bangalore.

The event will bring together leading players in cross-border transactions, assisted by Bangalore Chamber of Industry and Commerce (BCIC). Featured speakers include Marty Wolf, President of martinwolf M&A Advisors and Harish HV, Senior Partner and Member, India Leadership Team of Grant Thornton, who also serves as Senior Vice President of BCIC. Speakers from HSBC India and Khaitan & Co LLP will be announced soon. Gaurav Sharma, Managing Director of martinwolfâEU˜s Bangalore office, will serve as host and panel moderator.

The event comes at a critical time for India's IT Services companies. Analysis published in August 2012 by martinwolf M&A Advisors in the first India Edition of its proprietary MW IT Index revealed that for the period from January 1, 2011 to August 1, 2012, valuations for Tier I Indian IT companies (USD 500 million in annual revenue and up) fell 15.6% and valuations for Tier II companies (under USD 500 million in annual revenue) dropped 24.9%.

According to Marty Wolf, "IT companies in India are at crossroads and must develop new strategies for capturing value. The days of easy organic growth or growth through small, tuck-in acquisitions are over. In the future, companies must move up the value chain or become highly specialized to optimize value. Cross-border M&A is a proven strategy to do both, and this conference will give IT companies in India hands-on insight into what to do -- and what not to do -- when identifying and implementing these types of transactions."

Said Harish HV, Senior Partner and Member, India Leadership Team of Grant Thornton, "Dealmakers of this caliber usually come together only to close a transaction. This is a unique chance for IT companies in India to understand how to plan and get their books in order to leverage a balance sheet to buy or sell in the global market."

Attendance at this conference is limited, and by invitation only. For more information, contact Matthew Putzulu at mputzulu@martinwolf.com.
