WHO WE ARE
Bain & Company is a leading global consulting firm, serving clients from offices in all major cities. We work with top executives to help them make better decisions, convert those decisions to actions and deliver the sustainable success they desire. We are passionate about achieving results for our clients (our public clients have historically outperformed the stock market 4:1).
Bain’s Product, Practice & Knowledge (PPK) department has played a vital role in harnessing the best of our consulting staffs’ individual and collective expertise for over 20 years. Within PPK, each practice supports teams across the globe with deep expertise and knowledge. Our practices play a critical role in Bain’s commercial success and are a key strategic priority.
Bain has collaborated with clients on more than 10,000 M&A-related projects. Nearly half our strategy projects involve M&A, and our merger integration clients realize around 18% more shareholder value than typical mergers. Our work includes every major step in M&A—strategy, defining your deal theses, candidate screening, due diligence, merger integration, divestitures and spin-offs—across geographies, sectors and transaction types.
