We have supported numerous clients through their acquisitions and our transaction process has been developed to give you complete peace of mind at every step. We like to think it’s a blueprint for success as we’ve achieved an outstanding completion record.
Completion does not, however, mean that the acquisition will prove to be a success. It is estimated that more than 50% of acquisitions fail and of this 50%, the majority of failures are due to an unsuccessful integration.
After considering these, we suggest that you put together an integration strategy which demonstrates to all stakeholders in the target company that you have taken control from day one and put the time and effort in to make it work. By doing this, you will reduce uncertainty which can often lead to the ‘you and us’ attitude which can be detrimental to success.
