DALLAS, November 16 /PRNewswire/ -- BancTec, Inc., a global provider of advanced, high-volume, document and payment processing solutions and services announced that Mike Peplow, senior vice president and president of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) for the company, will serve on a panel of experts at the seventh annual Growth and Exit Strategies for Software and IT Companies conference in London on November 17, 2009. Along with other corporate development executives, Mr. Peplow will discuss how acquisitions can be used for strategic growth, and how technology companies can position themselves to be acquired.

The conference, sponsored by World Financial Symposiums, includes corporate development experts, entrepreneurs and venture capital professionals from companies such as Google and Silicon Valley Bank. The agenda covers presentations on various topics, including the latest trends in mergers and acquisitions; strategies for maximizing valuations; recapitalizing with sleepy debt markets; and building high-value business models.

The global financial meltdown and ongoing recovery has changed the dynamics of how companies pursue growth through acquisitions, thus altering what smaller firms must do to position themselves if they wish to be acquired, said Peplow. I'm honored to represent BancTec in this panel discussion with so many industry-leading corporate development experts.

Peplow is responsible for BancTec EMEA operations, including sales, delivery and business management. He has been key to identifying and developing new markets and opportunities for BancTec across Europe and the Middle East.
