Houston, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/18/2013 -- How to overcome operational, financial and regulatory risks in foreign markets will be the topic of three expert panels at the International Energy Services Symposium: New Markets, New Money, April 25, 2013, co-sponsored by the C.T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston, UHY LLP Certified Public Accountants, Haynes and Boone law firm, and investment bank GulfStar Group.

“There is no substitute for the hands-on knowledge that comes from entering, growing and winning in tough markets outside the U.S., and that’s what our expert panels bring to the table,” said UHY Advisors COO Ron Martin. “Just one new insight on operations, regulations, M&A or foreign problem-solving can make the difference for a services company expanding abroad.”

International Energy Services Symposium: New Markets, New Money will feature experts in oil and gas sector economics, foreign operating risks, capital access, mergers and acquisitions, and industry problem-solving to address the most frequently encountered risks and challenges in foreign expansion, along with the strategies and tactics that have proved successful,” Martin added.
