What makes a successful acquisition?

Most acquisitions fail to add value to investors.

Although meeting the commercial and financial hurdles is important, so too is addressing the human dimension. Over the last three months Nigel Cox Consulting has been helping a major international business do just that. The project has looked at an employee population of over 2,000 in nine countries across Europe. The brief has not just been about due diligence but has also about preparing and delivering a comprehensive talent management plan underpinned by a detailed communication and integration agenda.

NCC has also been supporting the project teams on aspects of organisation design and integration.

By building a comprehensive business plan, taking into account the needs of all stakeholders businesses involved with acquisitions and mergers substantially improve their chances of creating value over the long term.
