9780470024584: The Management of Mergers and Acquisitions

"The Management of Mergers and Acquisitions is far away from the perfect, polished presentations of the merchant bankers in which value creation is all too often just the result of a well-executed PowerPoint presentation.

Philippe Very takes us into the real world where management is the key word - management of the expected and the unexpected, of rationality and emotions, of processes and people. He combines the expertise of the researcher with live business cases. This makes his book extremely easy and enjoyable to read and at the same time builds the knowledge and the understanding of the reader quickly and effectively.

A perfect vade mecum that every stakeholder in a merger and acquisition should read: bankers, consultants, buyers, sellers, CEO’s and management."
Richard Simonin, Chief Executive Officer, Harrods Ltd

"Having worked with Philippe on a number of research projects, I have the highest respect for his abilities, motivation, and character. What he writes, I want to read."
Mike Lubatkin, Professor of Management and Wolf Family Chair in Strategic Entrepreneurship, University of Connecticut, Professor of Management at EM Lyon

"Philippe Very delivers a detailed guide to the entire merger and acquisition process – from identifying a target to completing the integration phase.  His highly original style, combines cliffhanger fictional stories with authoritative research results. Both M&A professionals and business students will take away a deeper understanding of the M&A process along with action points based on real-life problems."
Dr Stephen Gates, Principal Researcher, The Conference Board

"At last, a lively and entertaining management book. With little or no business experience, the case studies will give you a feel for the complexity of M&A situations. With more experience, you will quickly identify with challenges that you have faced yourself. In all cases, however good your planning and anticipation skills, expect to face the unknown. You are dealing with organizations and people: each one has expectations, frustrations, and an ego." 
Eric Bonnot, CEO, Audax – Basic System

From the Back Cover:

When mergers and acquisitions fail to live up to expectations, we generally assume that the price was too high or that the cultural differences between the companies was too great. The Management of Mergers and Acquisitions takes a different perspective and argues that the questions we should be asking are: why did they pay too much and why couldn?t they manage cultural differences?

As recent research has proven, answers can often be found in the inability of acquirers to adequately manage the whole acquisition process. Piloting the acquisition process means solving unexpected issues, dealing with uncertainties and managing complex problems under pressure.

This book has been designed for anyone who

  • Doesn?t believe in simple success recipes for managing acquisitions but wants to consider the management of such strategic moves
  • Is looking to develop their piloting skills
  • Wants to compare their experiences with those of other top acquisitions managers

The book is organized into seven sections outlining mergers and acquisiti ons, each one focusing on a specific managerial issue.

"The Management of Mergers and Acquisitions is far away from the perfect, polished presentations of the merchant bankers in which value creation is all too often just the result of a well-executed PowerPoint presentation.
Philippe Very takes us into the real world where management is the key word - management of the expected and the unexpected, of rationality and emotions, of processes and people. He combines the expertise of the researcher with live business cases. This makes his book extremely easy and enjoyable to read and at the same time builds the knowledge and the understanding of the reader quickly and effectively.

—Eric Bonnot, CEO, Audax ? Basic System

"Through examples and metaphors, Philippe Very shows how creating value out of M&A is about management - managing the human side, managing people, managing knowledge and experience, and managing the integration process. This book focuses not on M&A deals, but on how to create value through M&A.
Very?s book is about how to make M&A work and how to create value through M&A."
