Italian M&A and PE Forum: Abandoned Aquisitions – Why Do Some Deals Fail?

Date: 19 October 2017 9:00 am, Location: Principe de Savoia, Milan


Philip Whitchelo, Intralinks Vice President Strategy & Product Marketing, will be presenting "Abandoned Acquisitions - Why Do Some Deals Fail?" This presentation, based on a 25-year study of over 78,500 worldwide M&A transactions by the M&A Research Centre at London’s Cass Business School and Intralinks, seeks to answer these questions, providing provocative insights and sometimes counterintuitive conclusions.

  • Why are some deals more likely than others to fail, and what factors are significantly predictive of deal failure?
  • Do advisers help deals across the line, or increase the probability of deals being abandoned?
  • What can acquirers and targets do to increase the chances of successful deal completion?
