“Success with M&A requires intense focus on four potential failure points: strategic logic, valuation, due diligence, and post-deal integration. The high rates of failure commonly – and correctly – ascribed to M&A typically trace back to a lack of rigorous attention paid to one of more of these four failure points.”
