Board members have a vital role to play in M&A transactions, including a needed focus on post-merger integration (PMI) oversight. What are important considerations, both to avoid stumbles and create transaction value? We'll discuss:

  • An overview of the M&A life cycle and key integration activities, including integration strategy, culture, change management, communications, blueprinting, and synergy capture.
  • Common PMI challenges and pitfalls, including full alignment on integration objectives, understanding levers of value, and differences from business as usual.
  • PMI-related questions boards should ask to help identify and capture synergy value.

Participants will explore factors impacting M&A deal success and learn how board members can be part of the process.
