M&A is critical to many organisations’ growth strategy, not least in the oil and gas industry. As a result, major one-off M&A transactions and/or a larger number of smaller ones is a common challenge for many treasurers. In March 2017, HSBC hosted a flagship event for oil and gas services clients in Houston, USA. The event featured an engaging roundtable discussion, an edited version of which appears below, in which treasurers shared their experiences of M&A, discussing the practical implications of M&A, the challenges, and how to overcome them.
