I think it depends on the complexity and heterogeneity of the target company compared to the acquiring company. For example, a large national coffee chain acquiring 1 local cafe could be easily absorbed (by standardizing systems and processes – such as point-of-sale system, type of suppliers to use, etc.) – as compared to acquiring a similar-sized target company operating in another geography and industry or segment (e.g. fast food restaurant chain) which the acquiring company has no or little commercial experience in.
