"Companies that can manage the complexity of M&A by building the capabilities and insights required to realize its full potential for growth, can enjoy enduring competitive advantage."

"Many leading companies have created a repeatable M&A capability and then turbocharged their growth through a series of acquisitions."

"Almost two-thirds of respondents (63%) are using new M&A technology tools to assist with reporting and integration. Respondents say the tools help reduce conflicts, costs, and time—likely key factors in making more deals work."

"Companies that were actively engaged in M&A outperformed inactive companies not only in TSR, but in sales and profit growth as well."
