Analyzing Impact on Shareholder Value

Analyzing the short- and long-term impact of the acquisition on shareholder value. Most businesses expect to see returns within 12 to 36 months after the acquisition closes. With EPM, businesses can more accurately forecast when the ROI will kick in because they have a consolidated yet comprehensive view of performance across the company.

While mergers and acquisitions consistently create buzz, the reality is that more than half of all deals fail to create shareholder value. In a recent study by Boston Consulting Group (BCG), only 47 percent of all M&A activity produced a positive shareholder return one year later. Many factors go into the success or failure of an acquisition, such as cultural fit, market demand, and how comprehensive the due diligence process is. However, IT is one area that can make a positive and significant contribution to the bottom line during the M&A process. Specifically, enterprise performance management (EPM) platforms.

As a refresher, Gartner defines EPM as "the process of monitoring performance across the enterprise with the goal of improving business performance. An EPM system integrates and analyzes data from many sources, including, but not limited to e-commerce systems, front-office and back-office applications, data warehouses and external data sources. Advanced EPM systems can support many performance methodologies such as the balanced scorecard."

In this slideshow, Host Analytics has outlined five ways EPM can help save costs throughout the M&A process.
