Mergers & Acquisitions


When companies merge or make an acquisition, the parties involved typically expect that, upon integration, the combined energies of the firms will kick into high gear where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.


The evidence shows the opposite is much more common, with disappointing or outright failure more likely than not. The deal disappoints stakeholders and investors, and the acquiring company loses market share, margins erode, or profits drop.


The research indicates that most M&As fail due to poor post-merger integration. Much of the blame can be placed on poor pre-M & A activities.
