Synergy management for successful post-merger integration


After a serious cooldown in 2008 and 2009, the global M&A market is recovering in 2011, and will likely hit a transaction volume of about EUR 1.6 trillion by the end of the year. At the same time, however, the value of those transactions that fail is also climbing, up to estimated EUR 388 billion. In 80% of cases, the reason for the failure is a lack of professional integration and synergy management during the PMI process.

These are the findings of our study entitled "Synergy management for successful post-merger integration". The study was based on a survey of and interviews with more than 130 companies from 15 different industries.
