Realizing growth potential and increase in value

Takeovers and company mergers are essential parts of industrial expansion strategies. Still numerous studies have shown that more than half of such acquisitions fail, resulting in loss of value and failed growth. The primary goal of a Post Merger Integration Project is to avoid such failure by realizing the potential synergy of the growth potential in the merger.

Key to success is beginning as early as possible with planning the integration while calculating the cost and synergy factors. This can deliver also valuable input for the negotiation of the acquisition. Furthermore, it is important to identify early the growth potential so that it can be employed to add value after the integration.

Essential for the speed and final success of the fusion is realizing the identified synergies in the first 100 days. In focus are integration of customer and product portfolios, teams, structures, processes, and systems. Typically, the integration of the IT systems and their underlying business processes is usually one of the most costly subprojects.

Synergies and Integration Costs

Critical for the added value of a transaction is the utilization of synergies. It is insufficient to only estimate their potential – they must be realistically modelled and calculated as much as possible before the financial negotiations, and with consideration of the integration costs. Those reliable potential synergies enter into the Business Case, are important factors in the business negotiations and are the starting point for planning an integration with measurable financial effects.
