Topic : "Presentation Overview: Post Merger Integration"
M&A transactions have a high rate of failure. The results are clear:
- 61% of acquisitions failed to earn their cost of capital or better on funds invested. Even for small acquisitions in highly related industries, 55% destroy value. – McKinsey & Company
- Of the 150 deals valued at $500 MM or more, half destroyed shareholder wealth judged by stock performance and another third contributed only marginally to shareholder wealth. – Business Week & Mercer
With so many transactions delivering unsatisfactory outcomes, how can deal advisors, owners, and executive teams improve the likelihood of success?
Post-Merger Integration can support leadership teams to successfully integrate two organizations in to a single, aligned team – all pulling in the same direction to increase deal value.
Attendees will learn about the common integration pitfalls, how to identify them, and how post-merger integration can help your clients to successfully integrate their deals, and continue to grow through acquisition; not be afraid of it.
