Making the most from a corporate merger

Without a strong integration strategy, it can be harder for Texas companies to get maximum value from an acquisition. Ideally, a company will have a plan for the first 100 days after it acquires another business to increase its value. Without such a plan, the deal could be hampered by unnecessary delays and other problems. When executed properly, an acquisition plan allows for relationships to be created and metrics to be implemented.

While the plan for the first 100 days should be clear and thorough, it should also be flexible. It isn't uncommon for an acquirer to learn more about the target during the due diligence process. This could result in new opportunities to make money or problems that weren't anticipated prior to the merger taking place. The plan should consider what value the acquired business provides as well as the market conditions it faces.

This can make it easier to determine how money should be spent during the merger and the first three months after it is finalized. While 100 days may seem like a long time, it is possible to achieve a significant cost savings within the first 30. Throughout this period, the acquiring company should review whether key metrics are being met and what can be done to make it easier to do so.

An attorney may be helpful during business transactions such as a merger with another company. He or she may be able to work with a business owner to conduct the due diligence process or set a timetable for completing it. Others impacted by a sale or merger may also want to have legal counsel guiding them during the transaction. This may ensure that the final deal is in their best interest.
