Culture in Mergers and Acquisitions

Culture in Mergers & Acquisitions

Most M&A transactions fail to meet performance expectations. Misalignment of culture is often the key reason why. If hope is your plan to integrate organizations during M&A transactions you are exposing yourself to enormous risk. What, on the surface, seems like a marriage made in heaven can oftentimes reveal ugly truths when integrations are stymied by fundamental cultural differences. Getting ahead of this is key to a successful M&A growth strategy. Data suggests between 60 to 80 percent of mergers and acquisitions fail. While many factors are at play during integration, most organizations fail to recognize the power of organizational culture in the success, or failure, of a deal to achieve its intended targets.

gothamCulture’s M&A integration services help organizations understand and implement culture integration before, during, and after the deal is done.
