The majority of large mergers fail to keep the promises that were made to stockholders when the merger was initially announced. The latent value in the pre-merger organizations is rarely fully exploited.
Matter has been involved in several high- profile mergers to:
Our approach beings two principal benefits:
Matter facilitates, accelerates, and de-risks all phases of high-profile mergers, from discrete pre- merger discussions and negotiations to designing the merger roadmap to accelerating the work of merger work streams working in parallel.
In our experience, the key to creating value through merging separate organizations is to clearly identify those few areas which will generate the greatest value and then harness the energy and expertise of both organizations to focus on these few areas.
The secret is focus. Quickly generating promised value requires the intellectual and management rigour to focus resources and management attention on the fewest possible number of processes and functions in order to quickly demonstrate results and bring the entire merged organization on board.
Our clients include large and small companies, government agencies, and non-profits. These clients benefit in four principal ways from Matter’s approach:
Our events usually last from two to five days and involve groups of different size (from 25 to hundreds of participants). These participants typically fall into three categories:
People who decide: Executives, top managers and decision-makers.
People who know: Line managers and others who have a deep knowledge of the issues in question and understand the variables that make change possible.
People who implement: those who will own decisions and solutions and who ensure implementation.
