Managing The Market’s Reaction To M&A Deals

Exhibit 1 M&A announcement effects

by McKinsey & Company
Announcement effects are a good instant measure of market sentiment but a poor indicator of longer-term value creation. Nothing supports the integration of a major acquisition like the sense that the market has blessed it. Managers watch their company’s share price closely in the days following the public announcement of a deal, if only to reassure themselves that they didn’t overpay and that their efforts to value synergies, plan communications, and navigate legislative hurdles didn’t overlook anything.

by McKinsey & Company
Companies that do many small deals can outperform their peers—if they have the right skills. But they need more than skill to succeed in large deals.
