M&A and divestments are increasingly decisive for corporate success. Why? Growth promotes value creation, and acquisitions offer an opportunity to grow when organic growth is limited. Actively pruning the business portfolio over time also helps a company maintain its ability to create value. It’s not easy – most M&A actually destroys value. The key is to manage corporate transactions like an industrial process, not like an occasional activity.
