Market expansion and disruption is driving M&A activity in all sectors, but not all deal activity is maximising value creation. Even in industries that are enjoying high returns, a greater focus is still needed across the board on strategy and planning, as well as consideration of culture early on. To explore the unique and shared challenges of a variety of industries, we interviewed c-suite executives, globally, to uncover how they create value from their M&A.
What if you took a different perspective to your M&A?
We found that once a deal has been signed, there is a marked difference between different industries on how they focus on value creation. We know that companies that genuinely prioritise value creation early on have a better track record of maximising value in a deal. But, then why in some industries is the strategic plan not a key Day One consideration?
