Reply To: Day 1


Dale Deg

From the materials in these IMAA courses, literature I have read and personal experience, Day 1 activities need to done by the acquirer that are needed, required by some governmental agencies AND to avoid gossip/wrong information from starting. However, the Day 1 message to the target’s employees needs to be carefully crafted to communicate the right message. That should include acknowledgement that “we” (the acquirer) know this may be a hard day/moment for “you” (the target) and will work to make the transition be as smooth as possible. It should be encouraging to them and not have tone of negative messages such as “we win and you loose”.
