Has your organization ever acquired a rival? Discuss any learnings/thoughts in the comments

No, but Honeywell was almost acquired by GE a long time ago. It made it through all the approvals until the EU rejected it and the deal didn’t close Unfortunately for some unknown reason, Honeywell was already taking management orders from GE. They laid off hundreds of people. When the deal fell apart the company had to be reassembled. Lesson learned.... no deal is done until it’s done. You can make plans, make lists, whatever.... just don’t take any irreversible actions
