The current way of making M&A decisions is broken

The current way of making M&A decisions is broken
Siloed insights make it impossible to uncover the complex effects your M&A transactions have on your business. Generating insights is dominated by manual work and spreadsheet from target scouting, market analysis and due diligence to financial analysis and valuation.And subjective decisions based on gut feeling alone are no longer sufficient to outperform in M&A. Especially when the stakes are that high.This broken way of decision making leads to a failure rate of 70-90% and puts on average 83M dollars at risk for a single transaction. Not even including the cost of inefficiencies you pay to advisory firms, opportunity costs by not focusing on the right targets, or lost opportunities due to not deciding at all.
