Best Practices for Remote Merger and Acquisition

It’s not uncommon for business leaders to merge or acquire companies in order to grow their businesses. However, when these businesses are located completely or in part remote, it can make for an interesting combination. This article will discuss best methods for the successful merger and acquisition.

When a company is acquired, the acquirer will offer stock, cash or an amalgamation of both to purchase the assets of the company it is targeting and take over its debt. This is often a better alternative than a full acquisition since the acquired company’s name and organization are retained.

However, the acquiring company must still integrate its culture into the one that is targeted to be successful in its integration. This will require thorough due diligence regarding culture on the front end. This could be a major issue, particularly for businesses that operate remotely. Employees won’t be able get together over cocktails or establish new relationships at a team building event and need to be brought together quickly in order for the M&A to thrive.

Establishing a clear and concise integration plan in the beginning is essential to M&A success. It is crucial to form an organization that can organize and implement the integration. The team is sometimes referred to as an IMO (Integration Management Office) and should be composed of both external and internal experts. This group can help to keep the integration on track, provide expertise and accountability for the process, and act as a primary source of truth for employees during the transition.
