Swedish book launch of “The M&A Formula” and discussion of successful M&A approaches
Join us for the Swedish launch of the successful book “The M&A Formula” by Peter Zink Secher and Ian Horley.
Take part in a discussion of what drives successful M&A together with keynote speakers Svante Schriber from Stockholm Business School, Jan Barsballe and Anders Rosén from ASSA ABLOY as well as seasoned M&A practitioner panellists including Kristina Patek from Tieto, Peter Viinapuu from Cabonline Group and Robert Cornelius from Skanska.
The M&A sector continues to grow, and there is no indication of the sector slowing down. However, the likelihood of M&A deal success is still low.
The recent global study from Secher & Horley (2017) estimates an average M&A success rate of approximately 50%, which is in line with the Implement Consulting Group Nordic M&A with Impact survey (2016) suggesting an average stated success rate among M&A practitioners of approximately 60%.
One reason mergers and acquisitions fail is the lack of scientific methods and conventional processes in the thinking behind the deals (Secher & Horley, 2017).
Our keynote speakers will share a method for assessing M&A deals, i.e. “the M&A formula”. They will discuss insights from research, presenting Peter Secher’s new book, and dive into a case study and panel discussion.
After the short keynote sessions, there will be a panel discussion with participation from the keynote speakers as well as Kristina Patek, Head of Mergers & Acquisitions at Tieto Corporation, Peter Viinapuu, Group CEO at Cabonline Group and Robert Cornelius, Corporate Development/M&A at Skanska.
During the panel discussion, you will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as share your own experience of how to succeed with M&A to accelerate business growth.
We look forward to seeing you!
