Managing change in EU cross-border mergers and acquisitions
[March 2008]

The European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions organised a company network seminar on November 29­30, 2007, hosted by Santander at its corporate headquarters in Madrid, Spain. In intensive discussions over the two days, 32 representatives from companies, trade unions, universities, research organisations and the European Commission discussed the management of change in EU cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M& A). The context was set by a presentation from Roderick Meiklejohn from the European Commission's Directorate General of Economics and Finance, giving the latest evidence of trends in M&A in Europe. This was followed by detailed presentations of their M&A strategies by representatives of Air France / KLM (France, Netherlands), Impress (Netherlands, UK), Danske Bank / National Irish Bank (Denmark, Ireland), Schneider Electric (France) and Santander /Abbey (Spain, UK)
