This report explores the consequences of mergers and acquisitions for the companies and employees involved, as well as for the wider economy, on the basis of in-depth company case studies in 25 EU Member States and Norway. The study aims to summarise the features of the mergers or acquisitions covered and their effects. The case studies present details of the companies concerned, their size in terms of employment and nationality, their sector of activity and a brief review of developments leading up to the merger. In addition, the case studies explore the companies’ reasons for merging, the policy followed after the event, the impact on workers, as well as the extent to which workers were consulted in the lead-up to the merger.
