Merger & Acquisition (M&A) Services

Driving value across the deal lifecycle

Most executives go into a M&A deal confident they’ll be successful. But research tells a different story. About half of acquisitions, mergers and divestitures deteriorate—rather than build—shareholder value. What makes for successful deals? Is it the experience of the team? Bench-strength? Financial acumen? Discipline? The answer is all of the above.

Deloitte advises corporate buyers and private equity investors throughout the entire M&A deal lifecycle. From strategy development to selecting the right partner. From conducting thorough due diligence to closing the deal. Throughout the integration process or even through a divestiture, we align our services to address your transactional and integration needs, all with the goal of building value for our clients.
