9780470058121: Intelligent M&A: Navigating the Mergers and Acquisitions Minefield

Most mergers and acquisitions fail to deliver their expected outcomes, yet they remain essential for growing world-class companies. It follows that those handling M&As must draw on all the tools at their disposal to improve their chances of success. Applying the techniques of business intelligence can help managers to beat the odds. 

Intelligent M&A looks at the full process of a merger or acquisition from start to finish, and identifies areas where business intelligence can improve the odds of a favourable outcome. Using techniques developed by governmental intelligence services and a wide range of case studies, quotations and anecdotes, the expert authors show how to build success into every phase of the deal.

From the Inside Flap:

Use business intelligence techniques to be more successful when acquiring firms.

Strategies for integrating two companies after they merge.

How to be one of the people who survive the axe when layoffs occur as two companies combine.

Intelligent M&A is the first book that looks at the full process of a merger or acquisition to identify where business intelligence can improve those odds of a favorable outcome. Using techniques developed by governmental intelligence services and honed by savvy business leaders over the two huge merger waves of the past decade, this book uses a wide range of actual case studies, quotations and anecdotes to demonstrate how to build success into every phase of the deal. Not just large global corporate mergers, but also small company acquisitions, public sector mergers, and private deals are discussed.

Covering current trends in the market and anticipating changes yet to take hold, this book includes sections about the best alternatives to merging or acquiring, differences between public and private deals, when and how to use outside ‘experts’ most effectively, the increasing importance of culture and communication in planning successful deals, and the important role of arbitrageurs, private equity firms and hedge funds.

Most mergers and acquisitions fail to deliver their expected outcomes, yet they remain essential for growing world-class companies. It follows that those planning M&A deals must draw on all the tools at their disposal to improve chances of success. Applying techniques from business and military intelligence can help managers to beat the odds.

The authors – one with almost 20 years in the investment banking industry based at different times in the US, Europe, and Asia and the other with 16 years as an officer in the Royal Navy – also show how employees can lower the odds of being fired when two companies merge. 

Further information and continuing discussion can be found on the weblog intelligentmergers.com.

  • Use intelligence techniques to conduct due diligence
  • Value, price, and finance each deal to your advantage

  • Make acquisition skills one of your company’s core competency

As an added bonus, Intelligent Mergers discusses how managers and other employees can position themselves to best survive a merger.
