M & A Coaching

Somewhere between 60 and 75 percent of all mergers fail to achieve their financial goals. What’s more, there is typically a 50 percent drop-off in organizational productivity during the initial stages of a merger or acquisition (Achieving Post-Merger Success, Carleton & Lineberry, 2004). CEO Partnership worked on the recent Hewlett Packard – Compaq merger, one of the most successful corporate mergers in history. Working with associates in the Vector Group, Dr. Belsten engaged in an international cultural due diligence process to supplement hp’s financial and legal due diligence processes. HP executives credit our process with helping to ensure the successful merger.
