Why are 70 % of M&A Considered a Failure?
Vishal Acharya, Consultant, India
: Many succesful M&As are a part of the organisation culture or DNA of the acquiring company, which they use as a strategy for the inorganic growth.
When the organisation takes M&A as a one time opportunity, without assessing their ability and the synergy the other organisation which will bring on board, the M&A is bound to fail.
Moreover, organisations may not be equipped for the pre M&A stage, for the actual M&A and most importantly for the integration after the M&A has been done.
Also the goal with which they started may have diluted or may not be achieved if an alignment of goals and the strategy is not done carefully.
