CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - Sep 26, 2013) - PLS Inc. today announced that its Fall 2013 Calgary DEALMAKERS™ Expo starts 8:30 am on Tuesday, October 8 at the TELUS Centre, 120 9th Avenue South in downtown Calgary. This high-energy, one-day oil and gas prospect and property expo brings buyers, sellers and capital providers together with some of Canada's most attractive opportunities. In addition, the expo gathers some of the top capital providers funding Canadian transactions.

Private equity groups, banks and mezzanine lenders regularly attend the DEALMAKERS oil & gas expo to network with energy industry professionals. Carefully-vetted capital suppliers have become a distinguished value-added component of the DEALMAKERS events. PLS is bringing together some of the biggest names in global energy finance and advisory under the same roof on October 8 to meet with prospective buyers and sellers. They include The Carlyle Group, Canadian Western Bank, Macquarie Energy Capital, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, SW Capital Partners, ATB Financial, Deloitte, BMO Capital Markets, Invico Capital, Grafton Asset Management, Osprey Capital Partners, Durham Capital, Stonepoint Strategic Advisors, Ernst & Young and Black Spruce Merchant Capital.

Among the many registered E&P Companies at PLS's DEALMAKERS will be Apache, Arc Resources, Cenovus Energy, ConocoPhillips, Enerplus, Husky Oil, NAL Resources, Petrus Resources, SOCO and Vermilion Energy.  

A number of cross-border and international deal-making opportunities will also be available at Calgary DEALMAKERS. The expo has gained a reputation among the global energy community as a key venue for originating discussions as well as locking down terms on transactions involving prospects and property around the world and south of the border.

DEALMAKERS is open only to buyers, sellers and capital providers, making it the oil and gas industry's purest exchange for buying and selling prospects and property while also funding development projects. PLS expects 65 booths filled with deal prospects, and over 500 oil and gas industry professionals to attend. The forum of exhibitors and attendees helps create a venue large enough for attendees to gain thorough knowledge of the current deal market yet intimate enough to engage in meaningful and productive introductions and negotiations.

The Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) is sponsoring a series of M&A-focused breakout sessions throughout the day. Topics include "M&A and Money," "Drilling Deals & JVs" and "Energy Finance." 

PLS is still accepting requests for booths at Calgary DEALMAKERS. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Tim Pawul at (403) 294-1906 or Brad Jamison at 713-650-1212 as soon as possible.


Started more than 25 years ago, PLS's DEALMAKERS is the original forum for buying and selling oil and gas prospects and properties through the exposition process. The one-day oil and gas expo brings together buyers, sellers and the capital markets to conduct prospect showings, transact deals and network with each other over the hottest oil and gas plays. The event attracts the industry's preeminent prospect generators, playmakers, property sellers and capital providers.
