Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions occur for a number of reasons, from service, product and channel expansion, to geographic expansion, to greater operational efficiency. Ultimately the prevailing objective is to improve financial results and shareholder return.

Even though companies have become much better at managing the process of improving outcomes, many fall short in areas such as talent, leadership and culture integration — all of which are highly critical in getting full value from a transaction.

Failure to address the people aspects of bringing two organisations together can not only limit the effectiveness of the deal and desired outcomes, but in some cases can contribute to its demise.
Newtonhr Ltd has developed a framework for organising and assessing the due diligence criteria of people. The framework addresses all aspects of the people capability and aims to ensure that the integration results in a best fit operation.
