Despite research showing that most mergers and acquisitions (M&A) fail to create value for the acquirer's shareholders, they remain an important part of any company's long-term value-creation strategy. There are several key questions companies should think about as they define their approach to M&A:
What levers can I pull to create value from the acquisitions I pursue?
How can I take advantage of the current market conditions through M&A transactions?
How can I identify untapped opportunities in developing markets?
How do I manage the execution of the deals I pursue?
