2023 Annual M&A Success Survey

We are pleased to present the 2023 Annual M&A Success Survey report, published in partnership with Global PMI Partners and the University of Oxford's Saïd Business School. Our survey and report provide insights into the key behaviours that are enabling successful acquirers to achieve their deal goals, along with guidance on how to respond to new M&A challenges in uncertain times.

Over the past year, companies have confronted several new challenges in an already highly complex deal environment. Global economic activity is slowing, inflation is still higher than seen in several decades, and rising interest rates have had a cooling effect on the M&A market. The cost-of-living crisis, Russia’s continued invasion of Ukraine, and the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic all weigh heavily on the outlook. At the same time, geopolitical tensions are forcing companies to reassess their global supply chain and distribution models, as well as responses to the cost of energy crisis and the need to speed up the transition to renewable energy.

While these challenges have complicated strategic decision-making and slowed M&A activity in 2023, acquirers who continued to look forward, undaunted by the uncertainty ahead, have fared well. This survey report reflects how acquirers are addressing M&A challenges at each stage of the deal lifecycle.
