M&A Transaction Services

Driving value across the deal lifecycle

About half of acquisitions, mergers and divestitures deteriorate—rather than build—shareholder value. What makes for successful deals? Is it the experience of the team? Bench-strength? Financial acumen? Discipline? The answer is all of the above.

Even though caution remains the prevailing sentiment, conditions for deal-making are fertile. In a market environment where even modest organic growth can be hard to achieve, the corporate sector must consider inorganic growth opportunities, otherwise they risk squandering their hard won positions. Doing the right deal is about timing, intent, due diligence for fair valuation and execution capabilities.

Challenging markets create turbulence impacting demand, confidence, the competitive landscape and access to resources and capital. At the forefront of creating practical solutions, we will provide you the support you need to analysis and assess all available information in order for you to make informed decisions and create the best value from a transaction in the current global market environment.

To achieve the expected value from an acquisition or disposal, decision makers need to understand financial, operational and various other factors which impact the transaction process. Targets for acquisition or disposal demand a thorough investigation from a variety of perspectives to ensure value drivers, risks and other price sensitive aspects are identified and properly assessed.

Our transactional expertise is complemented by industry and functional experts from across Deloitte (tax, pension, accounting, IT).
