Merger and acquisitions (M&A) Services
Move your M&A deals with speed and certainty.
At a time of unprecedented disruption and an increased focus on innovation within the TMT sector, keeping up with market change and key trends is an everyday endeavour. To secure the best deal value, compete, and capitalise on new opportunities, you must constantly build, refine, and invigorate your portfolio and models.
One of the quickest ways to do it in the TMT sector? Inorganic growth—joint ventures, alliances, mergers, and acquisitions—coupled with divestitures when needed. Still, it’s no easy feat.
Your merger and acquisition activity must align with your business objectives and be promising simultaneously. It sounds simple, but it’s challenging to master. With extensive experience in planning and executing, we help companies quickly and cost-effectively add strategic capabilities and reach.
Having supported many complex and profitable mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures, we can help you create the right deal value through M&A—faster and with greater certainty.

How we work
We don’t simply play back what we’re being told. Even if our key highlights mean a fundamental shift in traditional thinking or creating a separate legal entity, we won’t hold back on bringing innovation and recommendations to avoid sustainable risk.
We deliver short-term gains rather than at the expense of long-term sustainability. Technology has the power to transform societies. Our role is to ensure customers are treated respectfully, not simply as a monetisable commodity. Positive social impact matters to us.
We don’t just deliver disruptive ideas; we back them up. Our market intelligence is highly rigorous – we leave no stone unturned to ensure you have optimal advice. End-to-end for us means strategy should come with a practical delivery plan made possible by our consultants’ hands-on experience.
We move with industry, which is revolving at a phenomenal pace. Whilst our methodologies are well established, we bake flexibility into our approach. Recognising strategy changes as findings emerge, we evolve our thinking to keep you ahead of the competition.
