Program description


M&A Acceleration Strategies

The history of M&A is filled with stories of entrepreneurs and teams with great stories that perfected timing. Whether a merger of equals to gain economies or enter into new markets, an acquisition must be properly planned and executed to ensure a smooth transition.  Proactive and transparent planning that’s prepared beforehand can mean the difference between an integration that is a success or a failure.

This program will explore the integration of processes, people and the organizational structure of successful acquisitions. 

Our experienced panelists will examine and discuss the issues facing the implementation of different processes, people, markets and culture into a new organization with a new vision for the combined company. 

 Learning Objectives:

  • Gain insights into the 'people elements' of post-merger integrations, including merging different cultures
  • How do acquirers handle the elimination of duplicate departments?
  • Strategies to ensure the product/service offerings work well, creating an acceleration effect in the market.
  • Learn some of the benefits of detailed good pre-merger strategies for post-merger integrations and the difficulties that arise from poor planning
  • Understand best practices to deal with the elements of purchase price that are settled post closing (e.g. earn-out/ working capital test)
