CFO2205 - Finance at the Forefront of M&A


Apr 27, 2022 2:55pm ‐ Apr 27, 2022 3:45pm


Description

Despite the impact of the global pandemic, there has been no shortage of merger and acquisition (M&A) and divestiture activity. Deals rose by 65% in 2021 to more than $5.6 trillion .Respondents in a global survey by Bain & Company expected M&A to contribute to 45% of their growth in the future compared with about 30% over the past three years.

Finance has always been an integral part of the M&A process. However, until relatively recently, that role has been mostly focused on performing financial due diligence, integrating financial systems, and tracking synergy savings realisation. In the current environment, we are seeing the role of finance expand from purely an accounting lens to a more strategic role in M&A.  During this session we will explore what makes a successful strategic finance M&A capability.

Learning Objectives:
  • Describe the expanding role of finance teams in the successful execution of M&A
  • Discuss the skills needed from finance professionals
  • Explore the elements of a successful M&A capability
