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|
