Transaction Strategy
and Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)

Executive Action industry and strategy experts advise on the optimal M&A strategy in each situation.

Thinking about expansion? Mergers & Acquisitions can be a strategic plan for your growth expectations.

Executive Action’s trusted advisors will guide you through the M&A process, from identifying potential opportunities and transaction prep, to successful integration. In order for clients to focus on more important aspects of their business during this process, Executive Action will anticipate potential issues and work to find optimal solutions.

Private equity firms, corporations and financial institutions spend enormous amounts of time and resources determining the right M&A strategy. Creating the highest return for shareholders may involve acquiring or divesting of divisions or a whole company. Executive Action industry and strategy experts advise on the optimal M&A strategy in each situation. We work with companies and their boards or private equity sponsors around the world to understand commercial market trends, assess the competitive landscape, evaluate strategic fit of alternative transactions, quantify revenue and cost synergies, estimate potential transaction prices before approaching targets or buyers, and identify the right transaction strategy.
