Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and divestitures hold great promise. They can transform your business. Transactions can bring expansion into new territory and services, improved technology and processes—and added revenues from more customers and economies of scale. Sadly, many transactions never deliver on those promises. In fact, according to one recent report, the transaction failure rate may be as high as 70 to 90 percent.
