Abstract

Increasing competition and globalisation force firms to grow, internationalise and find new business opportunities. New business is expected to create growth as well as to increase the competitive strength of the company. However, the creation process may challenging. The situation is even more complex in the context of mergers and acquisitions (M&A). New business creation may require one large acquisition, or a number of smaller ones. Success depends largely on how well these acquisitions are managed and integrated. This chapter concludes the book in terms of summing up and discussing the more managerial contributions and implications.
