Mergers and Acquisitions
At Deloitte, we know that every single choice matters. And when it comes to bringing organizations together through mergers and acquisitions or creating new entities through separations and divestitures, there’s no time to second-guess. With the combination of technology and experienced professionals around the world, we uncover, create, and drive maximum value across every stage of a deal.
Our global network of M&A professionals can help you unlock value across the deal lifecycle
Accelerate growth & assess opportunities
Combining local and global expertise, we build the right team to explore potential growth strategies, assessing how emerging tech can accelerate inorganic and organic growth opportunities.
Our target screening approach and experience helps identify attractive and plausible acquisition targets, encompassing options to diversify or increase market differentiation.
We advise clients regarding the inorganic growth, portfolio rationalization, and associated risk profiles that serve as a catalyst for a transaction, restructuring and cost transformation event.
Prepare for the transaction. Identify & mitigate transaction & closing risks
To facilitate our clients’ ability to make fully informed transaction decisions, we use our extensive deal and industry experience to highlight key issues and navigate blockers in valuations; deal structure; execution efforts and integration or separation planning.
Throughout the diligence process we impartially interrogate the deal, provide solutions to any risks, and identify and quantify potential upsides. An Executive briefing plan and board paper help ensure senior stakeholders understand the deal rationale and its implications, including closing risks.
We help support due diligence across financial, operational, and commercial dimensions and enable our clients to critically examine risks and value drivers underpinning a deal so that they can focus on the big picture.
Set-up for success from transaction close
When a deal reaches fruition, plan turns to reality, and all the details need to be lined up. From tangible functional concerns to intangibles like culture, getting everything ready to execute takes numerous workstreams and milestones. Deloitte helps clients take control of pre-deal planning, facilitate cross-functional collaboration and helps create the future-state organization they have envisioned.
Whether integrating or separating an entity, our team develops a plan to deliver on the anticipated business synergies. This can include running workshops to assess how sales teams, suppliers, employees, systems and processes will integrate; developing a customer retention plan and ensuring all regulatory and compliance obligations are met.
To unlock the full value of the transaction, we can also create and design talent retention programs, and help manage change and communication initiatives to drive a smooth and successful transaction.
Evolve your business to realize greater value
Closing a deal is not a single step, but a collection of interdependent ones. The way execution of all those steps carries a deal across the threshold will have lasting implications for long-term synergies and performance goals. Deloitte can help empower execution with real-time analytics that enhance and accelerate the necessary transformation of core busines processes.
The complex nature of an M&A deal will often prompt our clients to seek a more in-depth and robust understanding of potential disruptors and transformational opportunities to evolve and advance their business.
This might include assessing avenues for value creation, exploring performance improvements or reviewing readiness for disruptive technologies or events that may impact the future stability and success of the business.
