In our 2016 study we examined 23 years of M&A data – more than 14,000 deals – from nearly 34,000 companies worldwide to uncover the key drivers that make a company an attractive M&A target.
In this webinar we’ll explore the illuminating – and often surprising – results of this study and address questions about how financial characteristics of companies correlate with M&A activity:
- Can an analysis of financial measures, such as growth, size, profitability, leverage, liquidity and valuation provide insights into which companies are likely to become acquisition targets?
- How do these measures differ for private vs. public targets? And what is the relative importance of these measures in predicting the probability of a company becoming an acquisition target?
