PwC surveyed 100 senior corporate executives in the financial services (FS) industry, globally, and asked about their experiences with value creation in M&A.

While most acquisitions were successful for most executives interviewed, they could have been executed better to create even more value. This can be achieved through better target selection, pre-deal M&A blueprints, talent retention and cultural integration planning, and Day One readiness.

PwCís report Creating value beyond the deal: financial services found:

  • A strategic value creation blueprint could radically enhance the value of your deal
    66% of FS companies say target selection can be improved.

  • Value cannot be an afterthought - you need to think about it from Day One
    81% of buyers that did not have a synergy plan at signing destroyed moderate to significant value.
The best deals keep the best people
62% of purchasers said cultural issues hampered the realisation of value in their latest deal.
