NEW YORK, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Deal, TheStreet's (NASDAQ:TST) institutional business, today announced details on its eleventh annual forecasting event, The Deal Economy: Predictions & Perspectives for 2014. Held at the New York Stock Exchange on December 5, the invitation-only event will gather some of the most influential members of the deal community for a series of discussions on the key trends and issues confronting dealmakers in 2014.

"The improving U.S. economy presents opportunities for expansion, along with pitfalls that can trip even the most astute executives. Companies are sitting on mountains of cash and the low cost of debt makes acquisitions tempting. But the uncertain picture overseas, emerging technologies and evolving consumer behavior suggest that companies remain cautious," said Jeffrey Kanige, Editor in Chief of The Deal. "At The Deal Economy, we'll gather the important decision-makers in the dealmaking space to discuss this and answer the critical question of what the best approach is the coming year."

Sessions will include: "Sense of the Markets," a macro view of global dealmaking; "The Misuse of Shareholder Power," a point counterpoint on investor activism and its impact on M&A; "Bigger was better, small is beautiful," a town hall discussion on the relative merits for corporations of bulking up or slimming down through deals; "Liquidity Lowdown," an update on the credit markets; and "Sector Showdown: Auto, Energy, Financial Services, Healthcare and Technology," an assessment of the impact of disruptive companies on M&A in different sectors.

Participants include James J. Cramer, Host, "Mad Money with Jim Cramer" and Co-Anchor, "Squawk on the Street," CNBC, Founder, TheStreet, Inc; Richard M. Jeanneret, Americas Vice Chair, Transaction Advisory Services, Ernst & Young LLP; David Kenny, Chairman & CEO, The Weather Company; Alexander Navab, Member and Co-Head of Americas Private Equity, KKR, Scott Painter, Founder & CEO, TrueCar; James Rickards, Author, "Currency Wars," and Senior Managing Director, Tangent Capital Partners; James Rosener, Partner, Pepper Hamilton, Eric Rosenfeld, Chairman & CEO, Crescendo Partners, Stefan M. Selig, Executive Vice Chairman, Global Corporate & Investment Banking, Bank of America Merrill Lynch; Jeffrey A. Sonnenfeld, Senior Associate Dean for Executive Programs, and Lester Crown Professor in the Practice of Management, Yale School of Management; Leo E. Strine, Jr. Chancellor, Delaware County of Chancery and Robert Uhlaner, Senior Partner at McKinsey & Company.

Supporting underwriters for The Deal Economy include Ernst & Young, Pepper Hamilton, McKinsey & Company, William Blair and W.P. Carey.  Once again, CNBC will be the official broadcast partner for the event.
