Overcoming the Challenges: Integration Issues & Merger of Equal Issues
Integration problems are probably the #1 cause of a deal not working out - yet it's often the least understood part of the diligence, negotiation and post-closing process. This challenge can intensify if a deal is billed as a “merger of equals.” In this workshop, you will learn how to overcome the post-closing challenges of integration as well as factors you should consider when negotiating a deal to ease the transition afterwards.
