Keeping people and cultural aspects upfront in planning is fundamental, concludes a new report into value creation through M&A.

This new piece of research, co-authored by PwC and Mergermarket featuring analysis from Cass Business School, was the subject of debate at an exclusive breakfast briefing on the sidelines of the Mergermarket Germany Forum

In addition to putting culture at the heart of the deal, the other key findings assert that corporate and private equity acquirers should approach deals as part of a clear strategic vision and form a blueprint for a comprehensive value creation plan.
