Description - Intelligent M & A by Scott Moeller

Almost 70% of mergers fail, yet deals are essential for growing
world-class companies. Therefore they must use all the tools and
techniques at their disposal to improve their chances of success.
Applying the techniques advocated in this book can help
managers beat the odds - and employees themselves - to have an
impact on whether a deal will be successful both for the company
and for themselves.
This book looks at the process of a merger or acquisition and
pinpoints the areas where business intelligence can raise the odds
of success in each phase of the deal. Using techniques developed by
governmental intelligence services and a wide range of recent case
studies, quotations and anecdotes, the expert authors from the
renowned Cass Business School show how to build success into any
M&A situation.
The first edition of Intelligent M&A was written in
2006 and published in 2007. This preceded the peak year
(2007) of the last merger wave, including the excesses in a number
of industries and deals (e.g., financial services with RBS?
dramatically failed acquisition of ABN AMRO as a key example), and
the global economic downturn that led to a completely new way of
operating for many industries and companies.
Therefore, there is a need to update the book to incorporate not
just more relevant and up-to-date case studies of deals but to show
the ?new? way of operating in a post-Lehman
environment. Chapters will be comprehensively re-written and
populated with new and relevant case studies.
