A similar survey for mergers closing found that 53% did not deliver shareholder value, so the number is very steady.

In addition, the more strategic the reason for the acquisition, the higher the failure rate. That is, the companies that acquire to achieve economies of scale are likely to be more successful and companies that acquired to vertically integrate, enter new markets, or change business models did very poorly.

Success rates are poor in Mergers & Acquisitions and current economic conditions demand that you improve them. Tools for speeding acquisition integration are coming onto the market which will drive the need for more speed. Current Mergers & Acquisitions slowdown gives you a rare opportunity to assess your processes. Acquisition integration will only become more complex as regulations tighten, and the number of cross-border transactions increases.

Why do companies not meet expectations in Mergers & Acquisitions?

  • They overvalued the company during due diligence and therefore cannot gain the expected synergies because the synergies simply do not exist
  • Post merger integration is not executed well enough to extract the expected synergies.

Why Mergers & Acquisitions Fail

There are successful acquirers, and they have two things in common.  What are they?

  • Speed: Successful acquirers integrate fully 70% faster than unsuccessful acquirers.
  • Well-Defined Processes:  Experience alone does not improve success.

Successful acquirers actively capture knowledge and apply it to the next transaction. As a result, successful acquirers gain dramatically in both revenue and profit over unsuccessful acquirers.

By sources of value we mean the synergies you’re looking for based on whether your strategy is to achieve economies of scale or enter new markets.  Different strategies mean different synergies are more valuable to you.  Supplier rationalization and facilities consolidation are common to all strategies, but plant redesign may be important only to a manufacturer entering a new market.
