Global business in today’s is increasing market dominance via Merger & Acquisition. It increases
non only market capitalisation but also increasing the value of Shares.

equity performance of the combined enterprise. Not only funds, but the technical efficiencies will also
grow. Adopting synergy is only possible with M&A Process only which says ‘2+2=5’. To gain
something more, two entities join together and achieve higher what they were achieving alone.

all its subsidiary companies have to produceincome, balance sheet and cash flow statement. Various
stakeholders such as shareholders, investors etc need to understand the position of the combined
business and the impact M&A has brought to its bottom line results.

of the combined entity at any given point of time. Such harmonisation of uniform format brings
discipline to underlying accounting methods and practices. This in turn help the investors and
shareholders to understand the complete financial health of an entity.

accounts and cost objects such as cost center, profit center etc.

the data to a consolidation tool of the parent entity. Option B is to send to the parent entity ERP. And
