The Impact in Italy of International M&A
International acquisitions create value, and Italian companies that are able to, should systematically explore this path, in particular in international markets. To carry out international acquisitions it is necessary to pay attention to elements such as diversity in business culture, business organization, degrees of competition in various markets, and also cost and factor productivity.
By acquiring strength in sales abroad, Italian companies can exploit the higher growth rates in other countries and leverage the excellence of the Italian production system. Companies that carry out international acquisitions are thus important for the entire system, not only due to their ability to create added value and jobs, but also because of the impact along the entire value chain, including for companies that provide high value services for industrial enterprises.
