The challenges of Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Historically 60-70% of deals do not generate value
  • ROI (return on investment) pressure has increased
  • M&A is often based on opportunism instead of strategy
  • M&A proces is often underestimated in terms of required management attention, impact on company and stakeholders and emotions involved
  • "Post Merger” Integration is often underestimated (“too little and too late”)
  • A complex proces with many disciplines, stakeholders, various interests and emotions
