M&A Activity Seen as Key Growth Catalyst, Finds Deloitte Study

Mergers and acquisitions activity is being perceived as a key growth strategy by more than half of the companies surveyed by Deloitte, says Big4.com.


Big4 says that 52% of the 150 companies Deloitte polled in February and March 2010 expect M&A activity to add 5% or more to revenue growth on a compound annual basis over the next five years.


Quoting Chris Ruggeri, principal, Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP (Deloitte FAS), Big4 says that over the next few years, corporate development will be more important in achieving the strategic goals of 70% of the respondents. Big4 goes on to explain that corporate development includes a range of "activities that support and enable M&A-related growth."
