Post-Merger Integration

Challenges

  • Europe-wide market clearing process due to continuously increasing regulatory requirements (e.g. AIFMD/ KAGB) and increasing competition and cost pressure
  • Consolidation tendencies/increased M&A- Activity
  • Real estate companies are very heterogeneous:
    • Strategy (investors, real estate markets, value creation depths etc.)
    • Organisation and processes (manager to employee ratio, IT implementation etc.)
    • Employees (qualifications, salary structures etc.)
    • Cultural differences
  • Challenges of a post-merger integration (pmi) are partially underestimated (esp. complexity and change requirement)

 

Project approach

  • Stringent planning of a structured PMI-process (topics, resources, effort etc.)
  • Strategic and organisational analysis
  • Conception of NewCo (structure organisation, core processes and IT System)
  • Timely implementation of integration and implementation of a stringent project management
  • Ongoing control and steering of integration process
  • Development of a communication concept and focussed involvement of senior management and employees in the change process

Results

  • Target structure and process map of new organisation
  • Resource dimensioning
  • Chance for concurrent development of the new company up to „best practice“
  • TME provides experience and expertise (methods, business know-how and change management) to implement a post-merger integration successfully
