The number of transactions has been increasing in post-COVID times. According to a study from Vlerick, there were more M&A transactions, and the deal size increased.
The reasons for this increase are multiple. Market demand was high, money was cheap, and companies are looking for market expansion and increased control over their supply chain. The war for talent might also have an impact.
It is unclear what the future will bring. Interest rates are rising, and inflation is weighing on consumers’ confidence.
Most past deals were transformational acquisitions or mergers. Buyers pay a premium over standalone value because they anticipate benefits, such as efficiencies of scale. (Source: Datasite).
The main question is: how to avoid your next transaction is not delivering on its anticipated return?

It turns out that this is more of a problem for companies acquiring complementary businesses that they know pretty well. That’s because integrating the new business isn’t entirely the story. Your customers need to have a reason to like the unique combination, which may require change and integration. (Source: HBR )
