Post-Merger Integration

After an M&A transaction has been concluded successfully, the investors and the acquired company face different challenges in incorporating the acquisition, e.g. the HR-integration, IT- and financial integration.

As far as the financial integration is concerned, the reporting of the acquired company needs to be suited and adjusted to the Group’s requirements, in terms of reporting structure and GAAP. This means that possibly not only a new reporting format has to be implemented but also different accounting standards have to be adopted within a GAAP conversion. On the other hand, the group may face new or changed requirements for consolidation.

Within the HR-integration, new employees need to be transferred into the new Company structure and culture. Also labor contracts are to be reviewed and potential changes, particularly in light of § 613a BGB to be validated. One of the key areas to be integrated and challenged is obviously the salary and payroll processing system as well as any works council agreements. Auren assists you in these integration tasks. You can rely on our many years of experience as advisors of SME-enterprises, as well as our advisors’ experience in listed corporations, which – combined – give you the best results.
