FAIRFIELD, NJ — September 11, 2011— The Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) Metro Chapter is holding its flagship event with speakers from Deloitte, Thursday, September 20, 2012, at LEO Pharma, Parsippany, NJ.

Deloitte has participated in many of the largest, most iconic and most successful deals within the pharmaceutical industry, supporting companies with M&A strategy, valuation, transaction management, tax optimization and integration. While the recent recession tempered the volume, many “mega-deals” are still in the process of being assimilated. Recent announcements suggest momentum is picking up and 2013 will be a return to larger scale industry consolidation.

Join us with Deloitte speakers Susan Cypra, US life sciences M&A leader, Sara Elinson, principal, M&A services, and Pam Beckey, tax post-merger integration leader, to discuss experiences and to focus on the key differences between success and failure in an acquisition. They will also highlight key trends influencing the future of M&A in life sciences, including US Healthcare Reform and the Accountable Care Act and the growth of emerging markets.

Terry Beebe Thomas, HBA Metro president stated: “Join us for this insightful discussion on impact and opportunities during transitions in our industry. Be informed and stay relevant and learn how change can position you for greater growth.”
