The pace of corporate deal making — mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, spin-offs and joint ventures — ebbs and flows along with economic cycles. But regardless of the business climate, such transactions can help companies expand their market share or competitive scale, cut losses on unprofitable or nonstrategic businesses, or otherwise reorganise for efficiency and growth.
As such transactions continue to be attractive paths to renewal and growth, it’s essential that companies are ready to move quickly and effectively when deal opportunities arise. With the right preparation, deal makers will be positioned to achieve a deal’s strategic purpose and financial promise without assuming undue risk.
Towers Watson helps organisations in all industries evaluate the strategic rationale and potential candidates for a deal, assess the potential costs and risks, and address the full range of integration issues — from identifying leaders, retaining key talent and harmonising workplace programs, to managing the entire change process.
