Make or Break
Like the art of tightrope walking, merger and acquisition (M&A) strategy demands skill and sequencing — with only one chance to get it right. Effectively leveraging M&A to drive growth and improve competitive positioning requires companies to define strategic objectives and follow a clear decision path to achieve the desired results.
Deloitte’s M&A Strategy practice works with senior executives to define how they employ M&A — in alignment with their corporate strategy — to drive profitable growth and enable them to compete effectively in their industry. Knowing the where and how — where the company wants to compete and how it plans to win — is essential to defining an effective path and identifying strategic acquisition targets. Deloitte provides end to end M&A advisory services from early in the M&A lifecycle (M&A Strategy, Commercial Diligence and Operational Diligence) through to integration as well as with disciplines such as financial advisory, IT and tax to provide broad-based information that can inform the M&A strategy.
