WEBINAR: Where M&A Deals Go Wrong – Lessons Learned From The Frontline

Where M&A Deals Go Wrong

Event Details


May 3, 2018 10 AM - 10:50 AM PDT




The outlook for middle-market business is strong and getting stronger, especially with considerable liquidity, low debt costs and pro-business tax reform—yet buyers continue to struggle with creating and maintaining shareholder wealth.

Currently, over two-thirds* of completed deals fall short of their targeted ROI within two years of close, and without behavioral changes to optimize performance during the investment period, this will continue.

How can companies avoid this fate and shape deals throughout the investment period that will make their investment thesis prove out? In this session, Grant Thornton will reveal the results of their 2018 U.S. Deal Value Curve Study, and discuss why investment returns are compromised and how to get a different outcome.

*According to a recent Harvard Business Review article.
