5 common reasons for for failure after an orthopedic acquisition.
Wow! We saw 21 orthopedic acquisitions in 2022 (list below).
My prediction: M&A will slow down in 2023. The new 2023 acquisitions will be different. We will see cash rich companies exploiting companies that are in financial trouble.

So, what could possible go wrong with the 2022 acquisitions. Here are 5 typical problems that lead to failure:
1/Overpayment: If the acquiring company pays too much for the target company, it may struggle to recoup its investment and realize a positive return.
2/Integration problems: If the two companies have different cultures or ways of doing things, it can be difficult to integrate them effectively. This can lead to conflicts, low morale, and other problems.
3/Loss of key personnel: The acquiring company may lose key employees from the target company as a result of the acquisition. This can disrupt operations and undermine the value of the acquisition.
4/Synergies not realized: The acquiring company may have hoped to achieve cost savings or revenue improvements through the acquisition, but these synergies may not materialize.
5/Changes in market conditions: The market conditions may change after the acquisition, making it more difficult for the acquiring company to realize the expected benefits.
