Cross-border Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) have become increasingly important as an entry strategy for foreign direct investment; it accounted for as much as 36% of all global M&A deals in 2016. Europe, an important center of cross-border deals, has seen most of its inbound M&A activity come from the US. Despite having similar dynamics to domestic transaction, cross-border M&A also involves unique risks owing to the difference in economic, legal, institutional and cultural structures between countries.
In light of this we have prepared a whitepaper discussing distinct factors that influence the success of cross-border M&A. The paper covers, among other factors, the impact of cultural distance between the target’s and the acquirer’s country.
