Crucial Highlights of this Amalgamation


IAL will use the fixed assets of COL such as leasehold land, factory creating for the erection of its new plant after amalgamation. Thereby attaining a leverage of combined assets and constructing a stronger sustainable company.
There will be stability of the operations, cost savings and greater profitability levels for amalgamated firm post-merger.
Greater integration, economic strength, and flexibility for the amalgamated firm, which would outcome in enhanced general shareholder worth.
Benefit of operational synergies to the combined entity in areas such as raw material sourcing, solution placement, advertising, and sales promotion initiatives, which can be put to the best benefit of stakeholders.
However, following going by means of financials, the actual image of the amalgamation has the following regions of concern which demands clarity:

How significantly is the capex for the erection of new plant? What are the measures for revival taken by IAL?
As per the above financial evaluation, there is a reduce in industry capitalization of transferee firm post-amalgamation, hence there will not be any genuine improvement in the shareholders’ worth. So why does the company want to amalgamate?
There will be no income synergy benefit to IAL post-merger with SSPL because the sales of SSPL are decreasing and therefore there will no actual marketplace share for IAL due to amalgamation with SSPL.


This amalgamation will pose no benefit to stakeholders in the real sense.
