Event Details:


Plastics Industry M&A activity tracked by Stout reached new heights during 2016 with 475 transactions, a 15.6% increase from 2015.  Positive momentum is expected to carry through into 2017 with continued favorable financing markets, ample buyer equity, strong financial performance in many sectors, and historically high valuation levels.  

On Wednesday, March 8th at 1:00 pm EST David Evatz and Mike Benson of the Plastics Industry Group at Stout will guide participants through an in-depth report on the plastics industry landscape and the factors that will impact buyers and sellers in 2017, including:

  • Strong buyer demand across all end markets and processes
  • Relatively low crude oil and natural gas prices
  • Relatively low interest rates and overall cost of capital
  • Ample availability of financing

During this webinar, Mr. Evatz & Mr. Benson will take a deeper dive into each of these—and additional— areas. This analysis is the most comprehensive in the industry thanks to the wealth of proprietary data collected every year by Stout on several hundred relevant deals.
