Mergers and Aquisitions

Several academic studies outline the pitfalls of acquisitive strategies – between 50% and 75% of all acquisitions destroy value for the acquiring shareholders. That being said, a number of the world’s most value creating companies have been unusually acquisitive. How can these two facts be reconciled?

M&A doesn’t have to be a roll of the dice. We believe that successful acquisitions and divestitures are the result of systematic and value-focused M&A processes. A handful of exemplar companies across the globe have developed such an M&A process and continue to access the market for corporate assets to evolve their strategies and create value in line with a dynamic view of their internal and external opportunity portfolios.

We help our clients to identify opportunities to create value through M&A, and to realise these opportunities through a systematic and value-based approach. Our services transcend the entire process from deal conception to execution and beyond to integration.
