Applying CRE Value to the Mergers & Acquisitions Process

October 2016

According to the Wall Street Journal, the torrid pace of M&A activity in 2015 will continue in 2016 despite the wild market swings. Investment banks reported nearly $5 trillion in M&A deals in 2015. In KPMG's 2016 M&A Outlook Survey, 58% of respondents attributed the need for companies to fortify their competitive positions in the market as the primary factor driving M&A activity. According to survey respondents, successfully executing the integration plan is the single most important factor to reach strategic goals and increase shareholder value. How well the integration is planned and executed has significant downstream impact to the real estate portfolio of the combined organization. The Corporate Real Estate organization has a significant role to add value during the M&A process.
