All to play for - Striving for post deal success 

Acquirers are finding it challenging to deliver full value post deal. With higher purchase prices and more future synergy being paid over, post deal integration becomes much harder. Striking the deal is only the start of the game value delivery is 'all to play for'.

About the survey:


All to Play For is the fifth of a bi-annual survey plotting M&A development over the last 10 years. Findings from this latest survey seek to address deal success, as measured by shareholder value, in the market peak immediately before the onset of the current 'credit crunch'. These current challenging conditions mean failure to deliver value from these deals is likely to have a greater impact than before. The findings are as relevant as ever, both in providing insight into how to make recent deals more successful and improve the way M&A is done as the market returns.


By looking at the underlying trends post deal, we have sought to understand:

The impact of competition on deal success
How corporates and PE firms have fared in the current environment
What regional variations are present
How the escalating integration challenges are impacting the whole boardroom
