9 Facebook went public. Expectations did not meet reality.
10 The 2012 US presidential election turned into the most expensive campaign in history.
11 And the Middle East kept erupting.

14 South Korea gave the world Gangnam Style...
15 ...while North Korea gave us Kim Jung Un.
16 Mayan Calendars gave 2012 a bad rap.

18 M&A Leaders Forum And in the Global M&A Arena?

21 2012: 35% of transactions are Cross border 21
22 כאן כבר המשבר 2012: Do you remember? "בעולם נערכים למניעת משבר ליהמן ברדרס 2" The Marker, "המשבר האירופי נוגס בהיקף הייצוא של תעשיית ההייטק הישראלית" TechTime, "איטליה וספרד בדרך לחילוץ מלא; כלכלת העולם תזדעזע. איטליה וספרד לא יוכלו לשרת את חובותיהן בזמן הקרוב" Globes, "הבנק העולמי העולמי מזהיר: שנים ארוכות של תנודתיות בכלכלה העולמית צופה שקצב צמיחת הכלכלה הגלובלית יסתכם ב- 2.5% השנה" הבנק Calcalist,

25 Mergers Slowed to a Snail s Pace in the First Quarter, the Fewest Since 2003
26 Near future is not clear, we hope the best is yet to come!?
27 GLOBAL M&A GEOGRAPHIC BREAKDOWN YTD 2013 Most deals: Value ($) and Volume (#) (1) North America, (2) Europe
28 GLOBAL M&A SECTOR BREAKDOWN YTD 2013 Value ($): Consumer, Energy mining & Utilities, Media Volume (#): Consumer, Business Services, Industrials & Chemicals
29 2013 outlook: Will this year be promising? On one hand: HIGH LEVEL OF UNCERTAINTY CONTINUES, both political based and macro economic based. There s still low confidence in global markets leading to LOW willingness to take risks. On the other: Growth indicators are high (S&P 500, consumer confidence, etc.). Cash is king! And there s money out there. But transactions are not back yet!
30 M&A Leaders Forum M&A activity in Israel
31 M&As In Israel: Some Facts In 2012 there were 70 M&A deals at a value of USD 6.09bn, including 25 cross-border deals worth USD 4.56bn.

33 M&A Activity in Israel Big EXITs 2012
34 M&A Activity in Israel Few Acquisions 2012
35 M&A Leaders Forum If you happen to lead an M&A process KNOW that
36 you don t really need to be good doing M&As you need to be GREAT
37 This is the generic M&A lifecycle M&A Strategy Development Target screening & Identification Due Diligence and Projected Synergies Negotiation Integration Planning Deal Close Integration Implementation Second wave Implementation SOMETHING CAN GO WRONG IN ANY ONE OF THESE STEPS
38 Where and what can we do better? Avoiding the usual statistics 50%-80% of mergers FAIL
39 M&A Readiness Develop your M&A strategy: this strategy derives from your corporate strategy and should deal with questions such as what are the company s future growth engines, in which areas we d like to cooperate, which geographic areas are of interest to us, etc. Deal s milestones: Define clear milestones and go/ don t go decision points. Consider aspects such as deal profitability, complexity of the deal, integration approach, KPI s and measurements, etc. Management agreement and BOD approval: it s essential to get aligned and agree upon the M&A strategy, milestones and indicators, otherwise it can become a chaos. M&A Methodology and process: Create your company s M&A Booklet, define governance, project management capabilities, Roles & Responsibilities, etc.
40 Plan! While planning don t forget to pay extra attention to the following aspects: Clients: provide them constant updates, create a clear client retention plan, check clients satisfaction (from service, time to respond, etc.) Communication: Provide a clear picture to employees, partners, stakeholders. Deal with employees morale issues and fears. Deal with organizational culture and changes to be made due to the merger. Workers: assessment and selection of most suitable employees in both companies, retention of key employees and managers, handling payroll issues, Org chart, new management team, new aligned compensation systems, layoffs, etc.
41 Plan! While planning don t forget to pay extra attention to the following aspects: Sales: conduct thorough evaluation of sales team, sales streams, products, etc. Evaluate cross sales, up-sales, synergies, etc. Definition of Business and Operational targets: management of business objectives alongside with operational and organizational aspects to reach defined synergy. Planning and management of the integration process: project management skills and governance, drill down and cover all details.
42 Timing is an issue! Some activities should be executed at once, some could be delayed: Invoices, paychecks, financial and HR aspects should be taken care of immediately. There s no Absolute pace: The organization s ability to absorb changes from one company to the other. Sometimes, some activities should be postponed. Creating value to shareholders: measuring value is crucial, determining time to reach value is crucial as well. The main question is how time and planning influence value creation for the shareholders.
43 Plain DD is not enough, 360 degrees DD Legal and Financial DD are important but not enough! PMI aspects are more likely to focus on non Legal and Financial areas. 360 DD = synergetic DD, get down to the bottom of things and how they influence other areas. Manage your DD properly, manage it as a project. Use data room or any other tools that help your organization being organized, methodical and consistent.
44 Organization Health Indicators Check these indicators in both companies
45 Sometimes you need to run as fast as you can Abandon this merger! Business and Organizational Culture: when you can t Bridge fundamental gaps in this area Run away! Company s orientation: when one company is product oriented and the other is project oriented and you don t speak each other s language and cross sales is more than just a challenge Run Away! What are we really buying (or alternatively who is really buying us)? Sometimes the motivations for M&A are different to what is presented to the other side. If that s the case the gap can not be closed Run away. Falling in love with the deal: when you fell in love- don t run away! Stop, think, think again, consult, decide. Turnaround deal: when you need to turnaround the business you bought and you don t have the capabilities, think twice! If you understand that you can t deliver Run away.
