Mergers and Acquisitions

Should you walk away from a prospective merger or acquisition? It is an industry-accepted fact is that 83% of all mergers and acquisitions fail to produce any benefit for the shareholders and over 50% of all mergers and acquisitions actually destroy value.

Understand the issues that can disguise facts or derail your plans for success before you commit to a merger or acquisition. Go in with a plan and an experienced professional team to:

  • Analyze the communications;
  • Identify the drivers that determine the actual profitability of the new model;
  • Filter out unnecessary noise from shareholders and others who may not be able to contribute to the process; and
  • Discern cultural issues that are not being addressed successfully.
