M&A Integration: Looking beyond the here and now. PwC’s 2014 M&A Integration Survey Report

At a glance

In 2008 and 2011, our tri-annual M&A Integration survey reports underscored the need for early planning and an accelerated transition as critical factors for successful integration.
This 2014 survey report confirms these factors remain in today’s deals, and offers additional insights – showing that while early planning and rapid transition remain important, the commitment to integration completion over the long-term can be the deciding factor for deal success.

Some of the themes from the PwC’s 2014 M&A Integration Survey Report include:

  • Deal success remains a challenge by any measure, but, in particular, a rise in transformational deals has increased the complexity of integration.
  • Integration risks are plentiful, though some common areas pose the greatest challenges.
  • Success factors for establishing integration momentum involve early integration planning and rapid execution of specific activities.
  • Delivering deal value over the long-term requires commitment and focus.
