Raleigh, N.C., September 16, 2010 – FMI, the largest provider of management consulting and investment banking to the engineering and construction industry, spoke with executives and acquisition experts at several leading E&C firms who have achieved large-scale growth, and determined the finer points of acquisition and integration management. “After the Sale: Acquisitions and the Art of Integration” explores the varied strategies firms can use to capitalize upon an acquisition.
Executive leadership from Skanska, ARCADIS, Jacobs, EMCOR and Comfort Systems spoke with FMI about their acquisition history, challenges encountered, and long-term outlook. The resulting case studies examine how each company has successfully evolved over time and created a distinct brand in the market place.
