Morgan in 1992, he has advised on over $100 billion worth of corporate strategic transactions (essentially M&A), and over $100 billion worth of capital raising, such as IPOs, common equity, debt and venture financing markets.
For instance, he advised on deals such as:
– SAP’s acquisition of Ariba Software ($4.3 billion)

His experience and success are one of a kind for his industry, and we are extremely excited at the idea of hearing his views on the future of the Tech industry, particularly on how the Industry and established companies will cope with the emergence of disruptive Tech companies.
