Capturing synergies

At a glance

Value realized from an acquisition depends on how well the newly combined company identifies, manages, and executes on synergy opportunities.

Successful integrations follow a sequence of coordinated steps to identify, prioritize, execute, and track the drivers of value across the integration continuum.

The ultimate goal of any merger or acquisition is to create shareholder value. The value realized in an acquisition depends in large part on how well the newly combined company identifies, manages, and executes on value creation and value capture opportunities.

Critical to success is an approach that both shortens the time required to capture value and increases the overall size of the value actually realized.
