M&A Analysis, Planning, and Integration

Norova can help high technology companies analyze and plan for a successful company combination. Merger, acquisition, or strategic relationship activities always put a significant strain on an organization. They are one-time undertakings that require a significant effort and are overloaded with organizational concerns and issues. That being said, sometimes the combination of two existing organizations or technologies is the most effective way to "leap" ahead of the competition. However, the difficulty of these undertakings are easily underestimated. These combinations involve significant risk for both organizations. Objective, critical analysis and meticulous planning are the key to successfully addressing these risks. One of the most common problems is the lack of a clear and common understanding of the rationale for and the objectives of the combination. In these cases the risk of failure is very high. As the merger-acquisition proceeds, morale can be low and many activities slow to a standstill because, without this consensus and rationale, it is very difficult for the executive management team to communicate clearly and effectively with everyone in both companies. Norova works with the executive management team to draw out and document the key ideas and rationale, help develop a consensus as to the best way to proceed, and critically anaylze the approach. These activities reduce substantially the risk of failure and provide a common basis for developing support for the combination within both organizations. Once the merger/acquisition is completed Norova can also help with the complex, and often contentious, integration of the two organizations. One of the key advantages that Norova can bring to this activity is an objective viewpoint without the competitive pressures that often exist internally in these situations. This provides two key benefits to Norova's client. The first is that inter-organizational concerns and criticisms are mitigated before they become critical or escalate to "all out war". The second is that the executive management team is able to base decisions and actions on a much clearer situational awareness.
