Post-Acquisition Integration Handbook [March 2012]



When acquiring a new business, the real challenge starts when the deal closes. From the earliest stages, companies must focus on how to best integrate operations to save costs, create efficiencies and generate maximum value for their shareholders.


To offer insights and help you overcome challenges while realizing optimum value of your acquisition, Baker & McKenzie developed the Post-Acquisition Integration (PAI) Handbook. This essential tool for companies contemplating or in the process of making a multinational business acquisition, helps you to identify the relevant legal issues, plan the business integration and execute its implementation.


The handbook covers  


  • Step-by-step integration checklist 
  • Practical advice for developing and implementing a PAI plan
  • Tax considerations
  • Employment considerations, including easy to reference summaries by jurisdictions
  • Overview of employee benefits/equity award issues
  • Details on important compliance and risk management considerations
  • Overview of cross-border mergers in the EU
  • Summary of local integration methods, including comparison of merger versus asset sale structures in 39 jurisdictions
