A 2013 Bain & Co. study found that companies that grew inorganically through mergers & acquisitions (M&A) outperformed those that didn’t. In addition, M&A enables companies to speed up their overseas expansion through capability and customer acquisition, while extending their product/service offerings.

  • Sharing by Singapore companies and practitioners on the benefits of M&A, the process, reasons for failures and success.
