David Braun Speaks on M&A at 2014 European Base Oils & Lubricants Summit

Capstone CEO David Braun will present “Strategic Alliances, Joint Ventures and M&A – the Route to Success?” at the 2014 European Base Oil & Lubricants Summit in Alicante, Spain on September 18.

The two-day conference brings together leading executives and experts in the lubricant and base oil industry from established Western Europe and U.S. markets and from emerging markets, including Central and Eastern Europe, India and the Middle East.

Over 150 C-suite, senior-level executives, directors and managers will attend the summit, including representatives of such industry leaders as Chevron and ExxonMobil.

In his presentation, David will challenge attendees to consider their five options for growth as the base oil and lubricant markets face new challenges and regulatory developments. Strategic alliances, joint ventures or mergers and acquisitions can help companies identify new opportunities and ways to grow.

“I am eager to engage leaders in discussion about proactive growth and hear their analysis of market dynamics and trends,” he said.

The conference will focus on the global base oil trade, analysis of the European lubricant market, challenges and opportunities for automotive and industrial lubricants, regulatory developments and technology advancements in lubricants.
