The flurry of M&A deals announced in 2011, including AT&T's agreement to acquire T-Mobile USA, ConAgra's proposed bid for Ralcorp, and eBay's acquisition of GSI Commerce, indicate that M&A has returned, and is perhaps headed back to the levels seen before the financial crisis. Most firms of a certain size will turn to it in their search for growth, forcing almost all managers to face up to the challenge of integration at some point their career. For many managers it is often their first, and only time and M&A is high on the list of things that many managers hate. According to many studies, 50 to 75% M&A transactions turn out to be a failure. One of the main reasons for failure is late or wrong integration or bad integration management. There is a significant demand for more information on best practice in Post Merger Integration. This book intends to equip those managers for the task... Danny Davis demonstrates how to handle the post-merger integration process and show how to restructure, consolidate, reduce costs, create efficiencies and perform M&A, from smaller transactions to mega-mergers. The focus is on integration planning and delivery. The book combines a general/strategic view with detailed information of how to actually conduct a Post Merger Integration via very practical tools and check lists that will prove essential in delivering change before, during and after transactions as well as to ensure their success.

Bettina Hauser develops a research model, which encompasses entrepreneurial leadership as a major success factor during post-merger integration. Additionally, contextual variables, namely cultural distance and the organizational variable, relative size, are tested for their moderating effect on the influence of entrepreneurial leadership on M&A performance. The author clarifies the question of how entrepreneurial leadership can help to enhance M&A performance. Based on 114 transactions with acquirers of German-speaking companies, she proves that entrepreneurial leadership has a positive effect on post-acquisition performance and helps to overcome problems related to cultural differences.

Few business activities can match Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) in terms of the potential for reward and for danger. A successful merger or acquisition can allow a mid-tier company to leap into the top tier, bringing rich rewards to that company, and its employees and shareholders. The failure of a merger can, on the other hand, have a devastating impact, resulting a loss of credibility, destruction of value and in some cases bringing the parties to ruin. Depending on how you measure it, between 50% and 80% of M&A deals fail to attain their objectives, before or even after the deal is done. Practical M&A Execution and Integration is all about maximising your chances of success. Merging, de-merging, acquiring or acquired, if your organisation is involved, or likely to be involved, you will need to manage the process, and following this Handbook will give you a clear, simple framework to get the job done and help your organisation move on and attain the benefits and promise of the deal. The book covers the following core topics: Fundamentals of M&A; the reasons for M&A, types of M&A deals and the challenges they present M&A Regulation Successful M&A, covering M&A power and providing a detailed look at the processes and people involved Delivering M&A The unique issues of Banking M&A, which differs significantly from other types of M&A deals. The final section consists of document templates and suggested tables of contents which are designed to be used alongside the advice in the book, thus making Practical M&A Execution and Integration the complete guide to constructing a successful M&A deal.

Essay from the year 2020 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1,0, University of applied sciences Frankfurt a. M., language: English, abstract: This essay is divided into two main parts. The first part includes a theoretical discussion of the term merger and acquisition and provides an introduction to the phases of M&A. It represents an explanation of the classification and the different versions. The second part reflects the risk management and the necessity of the prevention. In the end, there will be a summary with a conclusion of this scientific essay. Reaching new markets, new customer groups, expanding the product portfolio or reducing costs is not easily made in a saturated market. The alternative to reaching out with new products as a vital growth strategy is to buy a company. It acquires new customer groups, brings in the knowledge and experiences of the existing company in the owned firm. Additionally, it can benefit from adding value and realize synergies. According to a survey by Pricewaterhouse Coopers in 2017, two out of three acquisitions are destroyed by the value rather than creating it.

Mergers and Acquisitions in Banking and Finance

What Works, what Fails, and why

This book is intended to lay out, in a clear and intuitive as well as comprehensive way, what we know - or think we know - about mergers and acquisitions in the financial services sector. It evaluates their underlying drivers, factual evidence as to whether or not the basic economic concepts and strategic precepts are correct. It looks closely at the managerial dimensions in terms of the efficacy of merger implementation, notably the merger integration process. The focus is on enhancing shareholder value creation and the execution of strategies for the successful management of mergers. It also has a strong public-policy component in this "special" industry where successes can pay dividends and failures can cause serious problems that reach well beyond the financial services industry itself. The financial services sector is about halfway through one of the most dramatic periods of restructuring ever undergone by a major global industry. The impact of the restructuring has carried well beyond shareholders of the firms and involved into the domain of regulation and public policy as well as global competitive performance and economic growth. Financial services are a center of gravity of economic restructuring activity. MandA transactions in the financial sector comprise a surprisingly large share of the value of merger activity worldwide - including only deals valued in excess of $100 million, during the period 1985-2000 there were approximately 233,700 MandA transactions worldwide in all industries, for a total volume of $15.8 trillion. Of this total, there were 166,200 mergers in the financial services industry (49.7%), valued at $8.5 trillion (54%). In all of restructuring frenzy, the financial sector has probably had far more than its share of strategic transactions that have failed or performed far below potential because of mistakes in basic strategy or mistakes in post-merger integration. It has also had its share of rousing successes. This book considers the key managerial issues, focusing on MandA transactions as a key tool of business strategy - "doing the right thing" to augment shareholder value. But in addition, the degree of integration required and the historic development of integration capabilities on the part of the acquiring firm, disruptions in human resources and firm leadership, cultural issues, timeliness of decision-making and interface management have co-equal importance - "doing it right."

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: There is a wide body of evidence that suggests that the management of human and cultural factors in post-M&A implementation is important and, where it is badly managed, helps to explain why up to two thirds of M&A deals are not deemed to be successful. This master dissertation discusses, investigates, and reports on research of essentials which make an integration process in mergers and acquisitions successful. The focus of the project is on the consideration of human resource management and cultural integration concerning the pre as well as post-M&A phase. Indeed, integration starts already in the pre-M&A phase with an intensive human capital and cultural due diligence. Thoroughly selected key employees and a highly skilled communication program might be fundamental keeping on the right track. The discussion about cultural integration includes cultural fit, cultural change and managing across national cultures in mergers and acquisitions. Furthermore, a comparison of international human resource management practices in mergers and acquisitions provides some interesting issues in that field. The factors discussed are based on a wide range of literature corroborated by some empirical findings published by international business consultants and scientists. Ultimately, the absolutely core message of this research is the issue that a comprehensive and sophisticated pre and post-M&A integration management leads to a successful transaction.

Success of Mergers and Acquisitions in the Insurance Industry: What Can We Learn From Previous Empirical Research?

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: 1,3, University of Cologne (Seminar für Allg. BWL, Risikomanagement und Versicherungslehre), language: English, abstract: Since the 20th century, the insurance industry has experienced an unprecedented wave of M&A. However, in spite of the drastic increase in insurance M&A activity, there has been little consistent empirical evidence on the value enhancement of these deals. Hence, many open questions still exist in this research area. The most fundamental questions are whether insurance M&A actually create value and what determinants influence the success of these undertakings. This thesis attempts to find answers to these questions by first examining the status quo of academic literature published in this field of research and bringing together the empirical findings on the success of insurance M&A and its influencing factors. Overall, the literature review outlines that insurance M&A on average tend to create value for shareholders of the target firms as well as for the combined entity of acquirer and target. Moreover, shareholders of acquiring US insurance firms, on average, also benefit from these corporate undertakings. However, negative short-term as well as long-term wealth effects for acquiring insurers’ shareholders are the common finding in capital market studies analyzing the effects of M&A transactions in the European insurance industry. Secondly, the reliability and validity of the findings of previous research are tested in an own empirical analysis which uses a fairly new approach to evaluating the success of M&A by using the idea of stochastic dominance (SD). More precisely, using a sample of 102 transactions conducted by publicly traded Western European insurance firms between the years 1993 and 2009, this work analyzes whether investors in acquiring insurance firms benefit from M&A by comparing return distributions of acquiring firm portfolios with benchmark portfolios using the first two orders of SD. The results show that insurance M&A trigger a negative short-term capital market reaction for acquiring European insurance firms. However, this short-term underperformance diminishes over time, and over a longer period of time of up to three years after M&A announcement, there is no underperformance of acquiring European insurers. In conclusion, based on the accumulated evidence from past empirical studies as well as the empirical investigation of this thesis, it can be concluded that M&A, not only in the US insurance market but also in the European insurance market, seem to be a viable model and are likely to lead to success for all parties involved.
