Conducted jointly by Culturelytics and Venture Intelligence, India’s
leading provider of information and analysis on private company
financials, transactions (private equity, venture capital, and M&A)

Globally, mergers and acquisitions worth a total of more than $4
trillion take place every year. Studies show that more than 85% of these
deals fail to create value, and in more than 30% of these,
cultural misalignment is one of the key reasons cited.
COVID-19 will almost certainly trigger a significant wave of consolidations and a big spike in M&A activity, as companies scramble to survive and win in a marketplace characterized by VUCA. These deals are likely to be more cross border control stake transactions. We already see China making big investments in Italy, and Japanese companies turning their attention away from China towards India. .
