Transcript: IS A MERGER A GOOD IDEA Value Synergy the potential additional value from combining two firms, either from operational or financial sources. - Operating Synergy: Come from higher growth or lower costs - Financial Synergy: from tax savings, increased debt capacity or cash slack. Synergies can be beneficial in many ways. A lower cost structure might allow a company to shift its emphasis to a more price-sensitive market segment, for example, generating new sources of revenue. But managers should seek synergies only after focusing intently on sales and marketing, for the quest to reduce redundancies and costs could draw their attention away from markets and customers—where real value lies. Advantages Economies of Scales Reduction of Fixed Cost + Better discount on Raw Materials + Better financial interest International Domination World Leadership on their business, Kill the competition Opportunities to increase their leadership Bigger capacities to invest in R&D : To be more innovative How can you estimate the value? Selecting a leadership team is one of the most important decisions the CEO of a newly combined company will ever face. Employees, investors and board members will be watching closely because the selection decisions set the tone for both the near-term integration process and long-term capabilities and culture of the business. CEOs face tremendous pressure to reward loyal lieutenants who were good soldiers for the old company REBRANDING AND POSITIONING Crucial for Vinci Bechtel to re-brand itself and reposition its offerings directly after a merger. For example: Vinci deals in a project called Vinci Concession that develops and operates a unique portfolio of transport infrastructure and public facility, Bechtel deals with Fossil, nuclear power plants, pipelines etc. The merger of the two provides an opportunity for the new company to reposition as Construction leader in Energy and Concessions . The company’s strategy here is to design a new corporate identity, while capitalizing on the existing reputation and clientele of both ex-companies. 1) Sharing of know-how and industrial knowledge. 2) The after-merger will be able to raise more capital and loans Both companies pool their capital, both tangible and intangible. Bringing together of physical assets + monetary injection. Share capital + debentures 3) Government Restrictions Construction norms and standards are not the same in European context vs US context. To bear differences in mind. Cultural integration This starts with understanding the cultural aspects of both companies and use that to the adv. of the newly merged company. Integrate different methods of operation into one effective method. This may mean to re-allocate resources and capital. Ha ving a plan moving forward. Communicate Accounting method A number of companies have shown that such tactics (customers) can even help improve postmerger growth, regardless of whether synergies yield cost improvement. For instance, the merger of two large construction-equipment companies led to a decline in the operating profit margin, but revenue growth increased by more than 18 percentage points. Vinci Construction Should they be combined using their existing recorded values? Or should both be restated to their current market value? Or should be an agrred price between both companies? Current rules say that if the merger is a pooling, the assets are combined at their book values. If one company is “purchasing” the other company, the purchased asset is recorded at its purchase price. New Merged Company becomes ONE: VINCI BECHTEL CO. LTD 1) Filling of Company Articles (State of Delaware) Because the state provides a complete package of business entity services as well as being a leading domicile for international businesses. To incorporate the new company: File new articles of incorporation in country in which company is registered. Include: Purpose of new corporation Names of directors and founding members Business address and Headquarters Supporting Documents outlining: Powers and purposes of the newly merged company + Broad outline of business plan. RESTRUCTURING When the merger occurs, it is likely that both companies will have similar staff performing certain functions. 1) Also, making sure employees are engaged in the newly Unified Co. “people factor” -workers are an imp resources and vital to the company’s operation To avoid overlap and reduce costs: to identify where layoffs are necessary and restructure of the remaining staff. This helps the new company to remove unproductive workers, review job descriptions and reinvent the remaining positions. Key Activities Right After a Merger After Merger Management Expectations NOW WHAT Funds: - The new firm may take over both company's capital reserves, making them part of their own operating reserves. The funds are acquired at their current market value. - It is possible, however, that the remaining funds can be distributed to the disappearing company's
