This chapter takes a closer look at post-acquisition integration, focusing on how the ways of integrating acquisitions with parent companies relate to control policies. Drawing upon detailed information available from forty case studies, the chapter first considers the methods of communication used, and the strategy and philosophy adopted by the new parent in relation to the subsidiary. It then takes a closer look at the level of integration of the subsidiary into the parent, and the methods and systems adopted by the parent to control its new acquisition. There are several key dimensions to the relationship between acquiring and acquired companies concerning subsidiary integration and control, communication, and parent strategy and philosophy toward subsidiaries. Each of these dimensions differed according to acquirer nationality.

Keywords:   post-acquisition, integration, control, communication, parent company, subsidiary, nationality
