This research study seeks to investigate two separate but related areas. Part 1, whose findings are described in this report, tries to identify the drivers of shareholder value creation from the merger and acquisition (M&A) activity of an extremely large sample of global publicly listed companies over the past 20 years. Part 2, examines the M&A strategies of an elite group of M&A-active corporate outperformers – companies that have demonstrated sustained, above average shareholder value creation (known as “excellent corporate portfolio managers”, or ECPMs) – to try to determine if this group share common attributes and behaviors, and to identify what those are.
