Merger & Acquisition Services

By: Michael Raynor  09-12-2011

Most executives go into an M&A deal confident they’ll be successful. But research tells a different story. 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.

Our 4,000 M&A professionals around the world deliver that kind of unique support to meet the needs of our clients every day. Our global capability allows us to guide companies through cross-border deals with an understanding of local culture and business environments. Our multi-functional teams offer comprehensive and strategically focused tax, accounting, consulting and advisory services covering more than 20 industry sectors.

From conducting thorough due diligence to closing the deal. From beginning to end, we align our services to address your transactional and integration needs, all with the goal of building value for our clients.
