Why do 70-90% of merger and acquisition deals fail to meet objectives?

With all that is at stake, the merger-and-acquisition landscape remains fraught with performance risk. Our aim is to access and deploy PYA’s integration experience to mitigate that return-eroding exposure for our clients.

With U.S. business combinations exceeding $2 trillion in 2015, and activity expected to be frothy again this year, the sobering fact remains that 70%-90% of mergers and acquisitions will fail to meet objectives. It is a well-researched and documented business reality that unfortunately persists. Despite the mountain of evidence bearing witness to the perils of acquisitions and merger integrations, post-merger integration continues to be a secondary priority, often assigned resources only after the transaction has closed.

Drawing from years of professional experience helping organizations integrate, PYA has released a merger integration infographic to accompany its latest white paper, “Lessons from the Field for Effective Post-Affiliation Integration.” Together, they shine a bright light on the integration process and its inherent risks, and offer insight for those organizations contemplating the bold move of a business combination.

According to PYA Principal David McMillan, “This infographic is a complement to the guidance offered in our white paper. It will assist organizations as they navigate the world of post-merger affiliations, and work toward successful integrations that are organized and managed to drive exceptional results.”

McMillan added, “With all that is at stake, the merger-and-acquisition landscape remains fraught with performance risk. Our aim is to access and deploy PYA’s integration experience to mitigate that return-eroding exposure for our clients.”

With broad expertise in the realm of affiliation solutions and vast experience working with organizations across the healthcare spectrum, PYA’s team of transaction and integration professionals understand the intricacies involved in aligning healthcare entities. The PYA Integration Management Office (IMO), a key structural component of the PYA process, was established with a singular purpose—to optimize integration results. The merger integration infographic identifies the PYA IMO hub-and-spoke approach to communication strategy and outlines key IMO objectives.

Whether it be pre-transaction advisory or post-transaction implementation and execution, PYA’s team utilizes more than 30 years of experience to help organizations achieve effective and successful affiliations.
