Mergers & acquisitions

How to gain value from M&A

(This session is held in English)


For many companies, M&A transactions are strategic way to disrupt and transform themselves to strengthen their product portfolio, gain the benefits from economies of scale or simply get ahead in the digital game. And M&A may be a game changer. But conducting an acquisition is also one of the most important decisions that a company can make; one that will affect the company for years to come. So, you better get it right. Yet, almost two thirds of all M&A transactions globally fail to deliver the synergies and value envisioned, and one in four acquisitions results in diminished value.


The major culprit is integration. You have settled on your strategy. You have conducted your due diligence. And once the deal is signed and sealed, it is all happy days and champagne in the boardroom. And that is where it starts to go wrong.


Learn how to approach your M&A transactions end-to-end to get the integration right and realise the synergies envisioned, what to expect in terms of synergies, and which problems to expect if you fail to follow up on realising the value envisioned.


Target group:

Executive and senior management in private and public companies that conduct acquisitions as a key element in their strategy.
