Repercussions of a failed merger

There are bound to be repercussions when a deal fails to close. Greg Zoch, managing director with executive recruiting and search firm Kaye/Bassman, says both parties may suffer damaged reputations due to public misperceptions after a failed merger.  “If the deal was made public, and then not completed, it begs the question as to why,” he says. Post-transaction communication can be difficult, and both parties should coordinate how they will frame the news in a way that doesn’t harm either organization or insinuate fault or bad faith. 

“Essentially, you’re talking about a break up. These two organizations were going to get married and now the wedding is off,” says Mr. Zoch. “People are going to fill in the blanks.” Savvy public relations professionals are crucial to communicate a message effectively and address public and employee concerns.  A failed merger might affect a hospital’s standing with physicians, its ability to recruit them, or its good-will in the community.  It is also a financially costly process, as organizations spend a large amount of money on the diligence process. Break-up fees, to be paid by the party calling off the deal, can be built into agreements.
