Abstract

Spells out that research shows synergies achieved are just not sufficient to justify the premiums paid. Focuses on recommendations for avoiding value destruction in mergers and acquisitions — rather than on research and analysis of why it occurs. Concludes that the likelihood of actually achieving synergies is low, and much lower than most buyers fondly imagine.
