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.
