Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) have long been usedas a way to scale up operations and broaden portfolios,enter new markets, acquire new customers, obtainnew resources, remove competitors and more.
M&A transactions therefore have the potential togenerate significant shareholder value for those whosuccessfully complete them. Success, however, is notguaranteed and research of completed transactionsregularly reveals that a large proportion of deals failto deliver the value they promised.
