Structured M&A search and target selection

The M&A transaction process is typically highly resource intensive for both acquirer and the target, and often fails to deliver the promised benefits. It is therefore essential that the deal has sound commercial logic, helps deliver on the client’s strategy and is readily communicable to shareholders and stakeholders alike. CRU Consulting works with clients to identify targets and evaluate their strategic fit against key clear and independently validated criteria, using our proprietary market data and primary research skills to deliver actionable results.
