Why You Should Attend

Post-Merger Integration

Mergers and acquisitions are fast becoming essential elements of corporate strategy. The worldwide value of mergers and acquisitions announced in 1998 pushed the $2.5 trillion mark - more than 50 percent higher than the previous year - and activity for 1999 is also brisk. Yet recent research shows that only about half of these merged companies have succeeded relative to peers, and despite a growing body of experience, the success rate is not improving. Still, a handful of companies have demonstrated that high levels of success can indeed be achieved on a repeated basis - success that shows in superior overall performance.
