Creating Value with M&A, Transactions, and PMI

Creating value from M&A, transactions, and post-merger integration depends on making the right strategic decisions and proactively managing the business portfolio over time. More than half of all M&A transactions and post-merger integrations end up destroying value. These deals are not only complex but also—for many companies—infrequent. BCG offers the expertise and capabilities to help clients maximize the value of these deals at each stage of a transaction.

The discipline paid off: the merger of giants was completed on time and on budget.
  • Helped in the merger of two large regional banks to create the scale and efficiency to invest in critical capabilities. The design of the new organization was a particularly complex and sensitive challenge. Developed objectives and principles to guide the design and then helped define the new operating model.
