Event in Copenhagen

Post-merger integration in mid-sized companies

Learnings from private equity

Join us at Implement Consulting Group for an inspirational morning event with guest speakers from private equity firms Catacap and Axcel sharing perspectives on how to improve the odds of successful post-merger integrations in mid-sized companies.

When do you say deal or no deal? Even though acquisitions are potential sources of great and fast value creation, we see that in up to 70% of all cases, deals end up creating more problems than benefits.

In Implement, we often work with merger integration in mid-sized private equity-owned companies. Here, we find that there are specific factors at play, and some of those which we find particularly interesting are:

  1. Owner-led companies with little or no experience of acquisitive growth; and lack of a strong toolbox for post-merger integration.
  2. PE owners expect fast value creation, e.g. realisation of synergies.
  3. The ability to balance daily operations with integration tasks, while having limited capacity.

Research and perspectives on post-deal experiences

Join us for an inspirational morning event, where we will share our findings from the latest research and a novel perspective on recent post-deal experiences.

We will look at perspectives on how to improve the odds of successful post-merger integrations in mid-sized companies by learning from private equity professionals.

We will explore questions, including:
  • What is the rationale behind the buy-and-build strategies that private equity-owned companies pursue?
  • Why do mid-sized deals succeed and fail? What are the biggest risks?
  • What are the key success factors in mid-sized post-merger integrations?
  • How to succeed with synergy realisation in balance with integration priorities?
  • How to ensure unity in the leadership early on? And how to retain and ensure full commitment in the organisation?

To highlight these questions, we have invited guest speakers from private equity firms Catacap and Axcel. They will share their views on what characterises successful post-merger integrations in the mid-sized segment.

The guest speakers will be followed by breakout sessions, where you as participants will have the opportunity to discuss individual topics, stories and insights regarding post-merger integrations.

We hope that you will join us for a morning discussing post-merger integration success and meeting and networking with like-minded CXOs, strategy and M&A professionals.
