Spreadsheet, glasses and folder with Mergers and Acquisitions written on it

The result of a joint research project by RMIT and CPA Australia, this report identifies and assesses the dynamics among the key motivations, risks, barriers and opportunities associated with mergers and acquisitions in the Australian not-for-profit human services sector.

M&As continue to pose a viable and attractive pathway for organisational restructure and growth within an increasingly competitive and resource constrained NFP sector in Australia. This study presents stories of various levels of M&A success. Successful outcomes from the M&A process included improved economies of scale, wider service choice, better service quality and stronger organisational capacity were achieved.

Nevertheless, an M&A involves organisations with different histories and ‘ways of doing things’ coming together. Consequently, many risks, barriers and challenges can potentially arise along the M&A process.
