Three Keys to M&A Effectiveness for A&D Executives

​This paper leverages findings from a Deloitte study of the relationship between A&D companies’ M&A strategy and their financial performance to identify three characteristics that companies which outperformed the sector generally shared and under performers did not.

  3. Target companies whose business models enhance your company’s market power.​
