Corporate Program past event

Along with a historically strong yen and increasing globalization, Japanese companies have increasingly targeted foreign companies as potentials for cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&A). However, the complexity of post-merger integration (PMI) along with differences in management culture and governance, not to mention language, culture, and hiring practices, can cause potential problems. This program looks at the latest trends in cross-border M&A and focuses on PMI. Special attention is also paid to potential post-acquisition problems faced by Japanese companies and the mindset of the foreign company being acquired. In addition, organizational human resource management post-M&A and important points for achieving success are discussed.
