Abstract

This article aims to offer a more holistic understanding of the perception of managers involved in the post-M&A stage on the importance of acquiring synergistic effects in different organizational functions. This study attempts to take stock of the most important organizational functions that need to benefit from synergistic effects in the post-M&A stage. This study followed a quantitative approach by using a questionnaire. The study used newly generated numerical data, obtained by converting the levels of perception using the Likert scale. The population of this research consisted of managers from different countries who experienced firsthand the M&As and post-investment intercultural integration processes. The data was based on one data collection round. The mail survey targeted mainly Romania and other Eastern European countries. Four basic items, i.e. management, finance, production, and human resource management) are the starting point to extracting a dimension and the component factor through Factor Analysis.

Keywords:
