Corporate leaders are increasingly looking to mergers and acquisitions for growth and shifted their focus away from maintaining a competitive position to expansion. Last year was the largest ever for U.S. M&A activity. By the end of 2015, $4.7 trillion of global deals were signed, topping the previous record in 2007 for deal value. According to our recent survey, U.S. executives expect the number of deals to accelerate and the average deal size to increase in 2016.
KPMG LLP, in collaboration with FORTUNE Knowledge Group, recently conducted an annual survey of over 500 company leaders and M&A professionals to gain a better understanding of the current M&A market.
Join professionals from KPMG’s M&A practice as they discuss key conclusions from the survey findings and provide recommendations on the critical elements to achieve a successful transaction, including getting the valuation right, optimized due diligence and tax planning, and well-executed integration plans.
