Mergers & Acquisitions

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?

BCG can help ensure a company's M&A plan is the result of a carefully developed corporate strategy. Our approach is strategy driven, not deal driven, and we reserve the freedom to say no to a deal. We support our clients during every step of the M&A process. Read More
