Transactions and alliances
The EY 7 Drivers of Growth
Market-leading companies rarely evolve by organic growth alone. To rise to the top, they seek successful partnerships and strategic acquisitions capable of enhancing their growth, competitiveness and profitability.
Leading businesses, while quick to grasp the value of transactions and alliances in today’s dynamic markets, also appreciate that landing the right deal is not about luck. They make a concerted effort to remain alert, to build profile in their markets and to ensure that they’re well positioned to seize an opportunity as soon as it arises.
While this is simple in concept, the journey can be difficult. There are many pressures that affect the ability of a business to achieve its goals.
