DealRoom – Using DealRoom to Plan Merger Acquisition Integration

One common M&A issue is treating integration as a standard playbook. This can cause an inability to see the bigger picture, and in relationships with customers, and can compromise the deal’s value to the maximum. The most successful acquirers adapt their integration strategies to the acquisition’s objectives.

The process of integration isn’t easy due to the number of moving pieces that must collaborate seamlessly. The process of integration can be difficult because of the sheer quantity of moving parts that need to work together.

To help overcome these challenges, it is critical to streamline and centralize communication. Acquisition companies that use DealRoom to conduct due diligence reports increased collaboration, a decrease in disconnected emails, and more efficient M&A management. If you continue to use DealRoom after closing, it becomes easier to manage integration and avoid the mistakes that can slow or derail a transaction.

A key step in the planning stage is to establish a leadership team that will aid in the process of integration. This is important, as the lack or coordination and support from leaders is the main reason for failures in integration. It is also vital to prioritize tasks and form groups to take on them. This allows for the proper allocation of resources, like the management’s attention and talent which can help create an efficient and effective integration.

Often, the most valuable synergies in integration can be found in the company’s marketing and brand. This kind of functional integration is performed on a function-by-function basis, and involves aligning the brand’s portfolios and messaging and also establishing an overall strategy for going-to-market.
