Success Factors of Mergers and Acquisitions

Looking at the M&A that I came in contact with I think one reason for the low success rate is that often a merger arises from opportunity and not from genuine strategic planning.
Sometimes some board members loosely see some similarities and the idea is borne.
However seldom you see a strict approach where you have a company vision and a mission statement as a base for a strategy that makes a merger a necessity.
With such a low success rate it is a high risk gamble. I'm surprised to see so many ventures going this road.

M&A is a complex business activity and requires experiences in all of your business functions.
Every acquisition is unique and needs a quick and consistent due diligence process.
Most M&A processes end at signing the deal - normally failures become visible after the deal is signed.
A merger integration strategy should exist, BEFORE the deal is signed - value is generated in the post merger integration!
