Centre For Mergers & Acquisition
Corporate Mergers & Acquisitions are Growing
Worldwide there has been an unprecedented rise in M&A activity. The lure of the following benefits attracts companies to merge:
Synergies in operation
Expansion in other geographical Markets
Acquisition of skills and technologies
Shedding corporate divisions in carve-outs to focus on core strengths
Challenges in M&A
The majority of M&A transactions fail to achieve the benefits that initially justified the M&A deal. Billions of dollars are lost in failed M&A deals. To avoid such outcomes, leaders, founders and top management need to acquire professional skills to achieve success in M&A deals in planning & implementing transactions.
Private Equity Pro Partners provides training to equip professionals with the requisite skills which will help improve the prospects for successful mergers & acquisitions.
