M&A Advisory Services

Disruption and change are here to stay. Intense competition, ever-increasing shareholder expectations and digital innovations are driving leaders to rethink strategy. The result is an urgent need to adapt that in turn fuels increased inorganic transformation through deals.

 

At the same time, increasing complexity and cross-border dynamics make it difficult to realize value in M&A strategies. Speed becomes paramount to success. 

 

Prioritizing People Risks

The success of an acquisition increasingly depends on prioritizing people risk. Our research shows that 60% of deals fail due to workforce issues. Organizations need to address this risk at the initiation of any acquisition process — at target identification and during due diligence — and with the same strategic focus that goes into analyzing the financial risks.
