Critical Factors in Acquisition Due Diligence Case Histories

Earlier this week RISC hosted another networking event at the Institute of Directors in London where clients, both old and new, came to hear Gavin Ward discuss what critical factors skew valuations in oil and gas acquisitions.

RISC has taken part in hundreds of acquisitions and divestments. We have advised on Ophir’s acquisition of Santos’ SE Asian portfolio, the acquisition of Petrobras Nigeria, Macquarie group’s acquisition of Apache’s Australian assets, Premier Oil’s acquisition of E.On UK, Santos’ acquisition of Quadrant Energy and the valuation of Venture Production as part of their defence against Centrica’s aggressive takeover.

Drawing on RISC’s previous experience, Gavin’s presentation sparked an interesting and thought provoking discussion between guests on what factors are most important to clients during this process; technical or commercial?

Another wonderful event which offered guests a unique chance to interact with other industry professionals in an open forum environment. Thanks to everyone who made the evening such a success! Gavin’s presentation can be found via the Conference Papers page on our website.


Some feedback from guests:

“Thank you again for hosting this event, it was very informative and great to meet with RISC again. I look forward to the next event.”

“Thanks very much for the message and the meeting was really interesting – unfortunately I had to leave early. The format I think is very good as it allows open discussion and I think that the level of experience of the audience helps. I would definitely like to join the next event.”

Robert Clews | Managing Director | Head of Oil, Gas and Petrochemicals – Project Finance Lending

“Thank you very much for a very interesting talk. It was certainly thought provoking & could have led to much more discussion if there had been time. Also thank you for the hospitality.”
