Förvärv och fusion : ett rationellt beslut?

by Fredriksson, Ann-Marie; Kristofferson, Karl

Abstract (Summary)
Since the beginning of the 1990’s a wave of acquisitions and mergers sweeps across Sweden. The decisions made in relation to acquisitions and mergers can be understood and studied through the rational decision-making model. More descriptive decision-making models can be used if the presented behaviour contains a low degree of rationality. The purpose of the study is to contribute to the knowledge about decision-making processes in relation to acquisitions and mergers in the IT-consulting business. According to the results of the study the companies have a low degree of rationality in their decision-making. The bureaucratic decision-making model enables a better description of the behaviour since intuition plays a major role in the decision. The market demands high growth which is an important cause for the companies lack of rationality. The display of action becomes more important than the actual accomplishment of successful and profit generating acquisitions and mergers.
