As per general observation the reasons why M&A deals fail, have multiple reasons but If the emphasis on the desired targets is lost and a clear strategy cannot be developed with proper supervision, and if integration procedures are not established, an agreement will fail. When they really should have been done, several M&A transactions refuse to materialise. Any boards and executive teams have such a focus on their own roles and livelihoods that if it is in the best interests of shares to seek a corporate combination, they will compete against future followers. That’s why many people fund management with a big stake in their own companies’ shares.
Such an ownership stake aims to balance management incentives with shareholders and to encourage them to behave in the best interests of their shareholders.The broad and most common reasons are over paying, culture wars, overstated synergies, faulty analysis and misplaced incentives. Few of the most common reasons also include Poor communication,When the intent of the agreement is ambiguous or the workers are not communicated, there is no synergy between teams and requirements of the agreement are reached.
Factors external – external factors like collapse and other environmental factors have an effect on deal success. Errors in negotiation, The corporation pays over the acquisition charges that contribute to potential financial losses. Investment mislead value, Investment in properties may look fantastic on paper but may not generate revenues after the closure of the agreement. Loss to clarify the mechanism of integration, post-merge decomposition of variables such as main staff, systems, major programmes and policies leads to failure of the implementation process. Differences in culture, If a solid approach focusing on the disparity in cultural factors of two firms is not established in the M&A contract, poor productivity is found in the workers of both firms. Poor coordination, whether the purpose of the contract is uncertain or the workers are not informed, the absence of synchrony.
These are few of many reasons that leads to failure of M&A deals.They are no too hard to not fix. A simple charting of plans and strategies will fix the major problems identified.One of the main reasons Flom and Lipton, Harris rohatyn, Goldman Sachs, Morgan stanley are known as the giants or pioneers of investment is because they have dared to involve in something that was considered risky at that time and emerged successful.
The author would like to conclude that the role of investment bankers in mergers and acquisitions is pivotal as they are involved from the very first step.It has been observed that the main reason why recent M&A deals go adrift is because of non-compliance and improper strategising as well as non-flexibility towards modern methods.It is suggested that by strategic planning, proper communication and mediation between parities as well as stakeholders, the success rates of such deals canoe brought back .Investment bankers always had a pivotal role to play and changed the phase of financial markets.
I have always been against Glorifying Over Work and therefore, in the year 2021, I have decided to launch this campaign “Balancing Life”and talk about this wrong practice, that we have been following since last few years. I will be talking to and interviewing around 1 lakh people in the coming 2021 and publish their interview regarding their opinion on glamourising Over Work.
