Focus: M&A in an uncertain market

With an anemic economic recovery and limited organic growth potential, many companies are turning to mergers and acquisitions (M&A) to achieve their growth targets. During the M&A process, CEOs and boards look to their CFOs to successfully facilitate the transaction.

From both a buyer’s and seller’s perspective, CFOs face many complex issues when it comes to M&A. In addition, the valuation, due diligence, and integration phases of an M&A transaction each present unique challenges for CFOs. These challenges are particularly heightened in the present economic environment.

Deloitte’s Global CFO program talked to key firm leaders across the globe to uncover critical insights CFOs need to know about how to value companies in an uncertain market; what unique M&A due diligence considerations to factor in during challenging financial times; and important post-merger integration issues that come to life during economic uncertainty.

As a result of these perceptive conversations, Deloitte is proud to present a three-part series of short, focused podcasts structured around key M&A phases (valuation, due diligence, and integration) to support CFOs in dealing with especially challenging M&A issues in the present economic environment.
