Systemising and generalising scientific views, the authors form own vision of the essence of vertical integration, the result of which is creation of a vertically integrated structure. On the basis of the study of scientific approaches, the authors further develop identification of the essence of the vertically integrated structure, present characteristics of its properties and also identify advantages and shortcomings of its functioning. The article considers specific features of functioning of vertically integrated structures in the mining and smelting complex of Ukraine (on the example of activity of the Metinvest Group), which allowed detection of positive and negative issues of integration of mining and smelting enterprises into a single structure. It determines that the basis of the decision to unite (join) enterprises is obtaining a positive synergetic effect. The prospect of further studies is the study of synergy during formation and functioning of vertically integrated structures in the mining and smelting complex of Ukraine.
