1 Overview CPE credit | Specialized Knowledge

With an unprecedented $5 trillion worth of M&A deals announced in 2021, M&A strategies are now cemented as a fundamental part of the corporate arsenal. The ongoing geopolitical and economic challenges make the post-pandemic landscape a world away from the past, and this requires companies to recalibrate their M&A strategies—both in defense to build resilience and in offense to charge the growth engine. We’ll discuss: 

  • The updated Deloitte Charting New Horizons M&A framework demonstrating defensive and offensive M&A strategic archetypes that can help pave the path to thrive 
  • Lessons for creating value in post-pandemic conditions
