    Abstract

    Much of the M&A research focuses on its success and on how to measure performance. It has been argued that acquisition success and how well the acquirer is able to reach the original goals depend largely on how well the business is integrated afterwards. Accordingly, the creation of new business and value really start when this process is complete. The purpose is to deal with M&A performance, synergy realisation, as well as learning and business continuity in the creation of new business through acquisition. The focus is on the complexity involved, and on how to evaluate and learn from the process.
