M&A Day 1

M&A Day 1 is the first full business day after ownership is transferred.

How well Day 1 is managed sets the tone for the rest of the M&A integration. The first day should inspire stakeholders' confidence in the acquirer. It is a statement about the acquirer's ability to execute. 

This section features many plans, presentations, checklists, and playbooks to help acquirers prepare for Day 1 and educate their people on how to effectively communicate with employees, customers, and vendors about the acquisition.
