Merger and Acquisition Support

The global team of experienced HFS analysts has a strong track record of supporting clients during merger and acquisition (M&A) activities. Our approach is research-intensive, unbiased, and confidential. We combine market data and financial analysis with deep industry knowledge to help clients assess and achieve their strategic M&A objectives.


The markets where we support M&A activities are typically IT and business process services, automation, artificial intelligence, blockchain, Internet of things, digital business models, and smart analytics. We also perform regular, ongoing analysis of start-up firms with unique digital business models.
