Her panel, "An In-Depth Look at Acquisitions by our Industry’s Top Hosters", is on Monday, July 16th at 10am.
This is a unique panel comprised of some of the top hosters talking frankly about how they look at acquisitions. The panelists take a down to earth look at many parts of the acquisition process including how they determine value, what risk means to the purchase price, features that can add or reduce the price, and practical, real world advice for sellers and other prospective buyers. In addition to Hillary, panelists include Greg Wong of Web.Com, Joe Bardenheier of Endurance International, Jeff Ferry of Goldman Sachs, Sumeet Sabharwal of TWC/Navisite and more!
This turned out to be a great panel with Hillary Stiff (Managing Director of Cheval Capital), Ditlev Bredahl (CEO of OnApp), Joe Bardenheier (SVP of Endurance), Mike Jones (CFO of Softlayer), and Sumeet Sabharwal (SVP of Navisite.) There were no slides but David Snead posted a description of the panel with some of its key thoughts on his WHIR blog.
