Strategy - Mergers & Acquisitions


M&A Deal Evaluation: Challenging Metrics Myths In the world of mergers and acquisitions, emphasis is often placed on evaluation metrics that look as if they tell the story, but they can be misleading. 

A.T. Kearney joined forces with the United Kingdom's Investor Relations Society to understand exactly which metrics and analyses get the most emphasis in evaluating proposed M&A transactions, and in this paper we discuss our findings. The research introduced a surprising insight: The impact on earnings per share (EPS) is by far the most emphasized metric used to evaluate proposed M&A transactions between public companies.

With this in mind, we look at two common and related myths surrounding EPS and demonstrate why these are at best unhelpful and at worst potentially misleading. 2013
