Davis & Gibbs Speaking at Acquire or Be Acquired Conference

Jeff K. Davis, CFA, Managing Director of Financial Institutions, and Andrew K. Gibbs, CFA, CPA/ABV, Leader, Depository Institutions Group, are speaking at the 2013 Acquire or Be Acquired Conference sponsored by Bank Director magazine.

The Acquire or Be Acquired conference has been widely regarded as the financial industry’s Premier M&A event since 1995. The conference attracts bank CEOs, CFOs, Chairmen and outside directors each year. There were over 650 attendees at the 2012 event. As many continue to predict a wave of acquisitions, the 2013 conference agenda was designed to explore various acquisition strategies and financial growth options available to banks through interactive sessions and presentations.

Andy and Jeff’s topic is for the 2013 conference is “Capital Management: Alternatives and Uncertainties.” As earnings recover and credit problems wane, banks face more choices with respect to deploying their capital. However, newly proposed regulations add more complexity to the capital planning process. Andy and Jeff review opportunities beyond bank M&A to manage capital in the current environment.

Acquire or Be Acquired is being held January 27-29, 2013 at The Phoenician Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona.
