Mergers & Acquisitions: A snapshot of a SPECIAL pre and post M&A process


  • Jones, Kevin


Imagine that you have reached the pinnacle of your career, and you are sitting in the driver’s seat of a multi-billion dollar enterprise. Business is good, sales are up, and the stock market responds to your company’s performance. In such circumstances, a chief executive officer (CEO) may sit back in his or her chair and ask, “So, what’s next? Do I add more staff, buy more equipment, build more plants, or expand globally?” This paper reviews the road map for a successful pre and post M&A team strategy. The writer attempts to develop a framework for a successful transaction. Every M&A transaction is different and requires special attention to detail and a contingency plan for unknown variables.
