Delivering deal value

Shareholders are becoming increasingly demanding, so maximising the value that can be captured from deals is crucial. The number of cross-border transactions is also growing, as globalisation and connectivity reshape the marketplace—and the traffic is two-way as companies based in China, India and other emerging countries move into more developed economies. In a connected world, it is as vital to understand national and regional differences as it is to understand differences in corporate culture. Moreover, finding the right target may mean having to compare the potential of companies thousands of miles apart.
