Mergers & Acquisitions

Towards a more prominent role for the Supervisory Board

This booklet will address the key attention points for Supervisory Boards in M&A matters, both relating to the opportunities for value creation and managing substantial risks. This will be described by the sequence of the M&A process: from strategy, to execution and post-deal integration. It also pays attention to the capabilities and processes a company needs to successfully execute and implement a merger or an acquisition.
