M&A integration: Choreographing great performance

PwC’s 2017 M&A Integration survey

In its 20th anniversary, our M&A Integration survey reveals that as companies do more transformational deals, complexity rises and success increasingly depends on coordinated leadership over the integration process.

PwC's M&A Integration survey has tracked the integration strengths and weaknesses of public-company M&A since 1997. Many lessons have held up well, regardless of the economic environment: Early planning, rapid execution, and long-term commitment to integration completion improve the odds that M&A will meet objectives and deliver value.

Dealmakers today are more ambitious than ever before. They are using M&A not only to improve the bottom line but to stretch their business, adding new and often unfamiliar capabilities. As a result, survey respondents reported a rise in transformational deals. As companies pursue these deals, complexity rises and success increasingly depends on coordinated leadership over the integration process.

The report explores these challenges in detail, allowing you to see what dealmakers are getting right about integration and where they need to improve. Along with the results, we offer our insights to assist you in making decisions when choreographing your organization’s next big performance.
