Mergers & acquisitions - how effective are you?

"The biggest single challenge to an effective M&A integration is culture" Pamela Young

Despite the number of books and articles titled 'Why most mergers fail', there are still many spectacular examples of poor integration and failed synergies.

Mergers bring excitement, fast growth, instant rewards and significant challenge.  Being clear about the impact of your merger philosophy on the business performance and understanding the cultures of both entities are two areas often underestimated.

We have supported post-merger integration for local and global clients in :

  • Pre-deal due diligence - organisation, culture and leadership fit
  • Integration planning - including the 'day one strategy'
  • Integration project management - ensuring integration deadlines and synergies are met
  • Integration communications - strategies and program roll-out
  • Post merger integration implementation - aligning existing cultures and shaping the new one
  • Post-merger leadership support - coaching and conflict resolution
  • Post-merger - measurement and evaluation
