Jeremy Fago is US Power and Utilities and Deals Leader at PwC.
There is much focus now on the economy nationwide and how it affects all the energy and utilities industry is involved in. It puts pressure on what can be achieved in the fast-changing energy landscape.
Inflation has reared its ugly head this year and dominates much conversation on how to achieve reliable and secure energy supplies. There is much more involved in that of course, so PUF turned to the expert relied on in these pages for years.
PUF readers look forward to the sage reflections of Jeremy Fago, PwC's leader on U.S. Energy, Utilities and Mining Deals. PUF talks with him on a regular basis to understand the latest financial happenings and M&A activity in the energy and utilities industry.
PUF's Steve Mitnick: A lot has been going on in the first half of 2022 with interest rates, natural gas prices, supply chain, oil prices, federal policy, war, and pandemic. How's that been affecting M&A in energy and utilities?
Jeremy Fago: A lot has changed since we spoke last, and some of it you could argue would be expected, but not all of it. The interesting thing about this industry is it's very resilient and fundamentally we still see robust opportunity and activity on the deals front.
