Prospective acquisition and integration: better avoid being idle
Acquisitions - regardless of the size - reveal their full scope following legal completion: merging business units and teams, possible re-positioning of acquired operations or even restructuring measures are challenging for both companies. Initially positive estimates may deteriorate significantly due to long-lasting integration procedures. Thus, takeovers or mergers are often questioned afterwards.
In this regard, it is of utmost importance to plan all M&A activities in detail - and in the long run. Proper due diligence and legal support of the transaction represent the basis of each transaction. Early discussions about the project’s future potential are also very important: How do synergies look like and how long does it take to create these synergies? Are there activities which should be discontinued? What are long-term strategic implications? These issues should be discussed ahead of an M&A project – and not gradually during the process.
