Bio-Pharma Industry Experts Deliver M&A Value Through Integration Excellence
Date:4/28/2010

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The biopharma mega-mergers that grabbed headlines last year - Roche + Genentech, Pfizer + Wyeth and Merck + Schering-Plough - are now in the critical post-integration period and the acquiring companies are finding out how well they planned and executed their integration plans. It's too early for final verdicts, but clearly one M&A issue that continues to create problems for the industry is the integration of corporate cultures.

A Best Practices, LLC study found while corporate culture was rated as a highly important risk-assessment factor for a successful integration, cultural assessments were rated as a less effective pre-integration planning activity due to accuracy. Experienced integration leaders develop specific processes and approaches to assess the culture of M&A targets and then continuously assess and monitor to ensure the cultures integrate along with operations, according to our report "M&A Integration Excellence: What Bio-Pharma Companies Need to Know."
