Deloitte in merger talks with Roland Berger

Deloitte is talking with global consultancy
firm Roland Berger Strategy Consultants (Roland Berger) about a
possible merger.

Roland Berger has a total of 2,000 staff in 39
offices worldwide and reported revenue of about €616m ($840m) in
2009.

A Roland Berger spokesperson told the
International Accounting Bulletin that the two firms are
in talks to merge but that the final decision must be approved by
the firms partners scheduled to take place at its partner
meeting in December.

Deloitte Germany chief executive Martin Plendl
said the merger is part of the firms plan to create a global
strategic consulting arm with an annual revenue of about
$2.8bn.

The merged company will be called Roland
Berger Deloitte Strategy Consulting and bring together Deloitte’s
strategy, operations and company restructuring consultancy
divisions with Roland Berger’s.

The firm has recently acquired several
consulting firms, including BearingPoint’s North American public
sector practice and the UK real estate consultancy Driver
Jonas.

Deloitte’s most recent combined business
consulting revenue was $7.5bn in the year to 30 June 2010.
