mergers and acquisitions graphic

Infographic – Mergers & Acquisitions – April 2017

If you stacked just one trillion U.S. dollar bills on your kitchen table, the stack would reach 63,000 miles into space and would weigh more than the Golden Gate Bridge! But 80% of M&A deals fail. So if you’re thinking about playing this risky game, you’d better download our infographic and keep it handy. All sources cited.
