End-to-end M&A

The pandemic has forever changed the way Canadian businesses make deals. While the nuts and bolts remain the same—developing strong relationships and focusing on fundamentals—strategies for mergers and acquisitions (M&A) should reflect the new priorities and opportunities of a post-crisis world. These strategies need to focus on growth, succession planning, or portfolio optimization.

While companies may utilize it differently, M&A activity will continue to be a key feature of economic recovery. Going forward, successful deal making will combine sustainability with commercial success, resiliency, and trust among stakeholders. Boards and management teams that think boldly and holistically about M&A will see the benefits.

There’s much more to M&A than just buying or selling a business, especially in today’s uncertain environment. Companies must consider the future of their industry to be successful. They must recognize what is required to be prosperous in the future by identifying risks, building relationships with non-traditional partners, and thinking strategically about growth.

At Deloitte, we offer seamless services across the entire M&A life cycle, from M&A strategy, deal origination, execution and closing, through to integration or separation. Through our deal knowledge, industry insights, and scale, Deloitte’s end-to-end M&A team supports clients throughout the entirety of their journey.
