M&A lies

From Deloitte:
  1. Good enough is good enough
  2. Smart companies don’t do dumb deals
  3. M&A matters only during a boom
  4. You’re on top of all the deals that matter
  5. Acquisitions are the only deals that create value
  6. Numbers don’t lie
  7. Don’t worry about integration until the deal is done
  8. This one looks clean. Just kick the tires.
  9. It’s all about price
  10. Customers will love it
  11. It’ll be great for our people, too
  12. Tax? We’ll figure it out later
  13. International deals are like domestic deals, except you have to fly more
  14. It’s not personal
