Case studies | Mergers & Acquisitions

The sad truth is that less than 50% of mergers and acquisitions succeed. A study conducted by Mercer Management Consulting concluded that " 48% of mergers still under perform after three years" , whilst a study by KPMG reported that 83% of all mergers and acquisitions failed to produce any benefit for shareholders and 61% actually destroyed shareholders' wealth.

One of the primary reasons for this is that an acquisition is a financial-driven deal. But once the contract is signed it becomes a human drama filled with emotion and uncertainty and the only way to manage this process is through effective and engaging internal communication.

Internal communications is one of the top three drivers for a successful merger. The complex and often painful process of bringing two sets of employees together and creating a new structure, culture, brand and vision is by providing a continuous flow of information to staff and responding to their feedback.

Carmasol consultants have worked on M&A programmes and helped CEOs and senior management develop and implement successful employee engagement strategies during periods of major change.
