People and organization in M&A due diligence
Whitepaper from 1. February 2024
While there has been a slowdown in the number and value of M&A deals in recent years, looking forward, we expect a ramp-up in market consolidation. Selling business units that are in distress, gaining access to new markets and customer groups, securing supply chains, and planning suc-cession in family businesses are all expected to be key drivers for M&A in 2024.
Two critical, yet often neglected aspects of the due diligence process are the people and organiza-tion. Even though these are not initially a focus of the financial and legal transaction, in many cases they are the true gatekeepers of value creation for the overall merger and integration.
Find out in this paper, why the success of M&A deals depends largely on people and organization dimensions.
