Philip Dunlap Discusses Energy M&A Activity with Middle Market Growth Magazine

Philip Dunlap, managing partner of the firm’s Houston office and member of the Corporate Practice, discusses the current state of mergers and acquisitions transactions in the energy industry, anticipated changes in private equity investment strategies in oil and gas, and mergers and acquisitions activity surrounding renewable energy businesses in the July/August 2020 issue of Middle Market Growth Magazine. 

The official publication of Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), Middle Market Growth covers news, industry trends, best practices and thought leadership for middle-market M&A deal-makers and business leaders focused on driving growth. The July/August edition sheds light on the M&A outlook for the energy sector and the role investors are playing in an unpredictable landscape. 

Philip insights were shared in a dedicated feature titled, “A Qualified Opinion.” 

Across all sectors of the energy industry (upstream, midstream, downstream and services), opportunistic buyers, particularly strategic buyers, will find a way to acquire distressed companies or assets from sellers who need cash to survive. This will lead to a consolidation of stronger key players in each of these.

He counsels private companies, private equity funds and their portfolio companies in connection with strategic investments, joint ventures, mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, as well as on general corporate matters.
