Post-Merger Integration Value

The value of a deal relies on an organized post-merger integration checklist.

Post-merger integration, commonly referred to as PMI, is a crucial stage of M&A. The PMI stage determines the value of any M&A deal. PMI requires early planning, strategic thinking, and swift decision making. Typically, PMI is complex, and happens alongside a business’ core activities. A common mistake during PMI is simply not planning ahead early on in a deal’s life cycle. To create an even greater challenge, there is no standard or correct way to implement successful PMI. Teams need to focus on the deal's strategic objectives and identify synergies to ensure the maximum value of the deal can be achieved.

PMI can be broken down in stages, starting with closing day/day one. The first three years post-deal are critical to a deal's success, and DealRoom M&A integration software can help you prepare. The M&A integration platform enables teams to plan for the transforming stage from the very beginning of document collection. Teams have access to all the files and data before the deal closes, allowing them to spot areas of concern and plan accordingly.

Execute plans and collaborate in one place

A successful PMI process involves visioning, shaping, and transforming. Visioning is setting the strategy and priorities, including prioritization of synergies. Shaping is determining how the buyer, target, and their respective functions should be integrated. Finally, transforming is the final stage of PMI, when all the integration occurs.

Team members often spend too much time tracking their work in multiple versions of shared Excel documents, resulting in confusion and bottlenecks in an integration’s progress.

DealRoom M&A integration software is designed to consolidate and streamline these problems. You can track everything on one platform and it is updated in real time. This allows for less time spent reporting, and lets you focus more on the future of the company.

If there is a lack of synchronization in the newly formed company, the value of a deal decreases and can lead to post-close failure.
