Conclusions: Consequences can appear due to an acquisition. Only mild consequences appeared in the case of Marknadsananalys. This might have been based on the size of Marknadsanalys and the central part that the leader played. Leaders in small companies have a tendency to play a bigger part bigger part in difference to large companies, were the organisational structure often is more important. Marknadsanalys was led by a goal- oriented and visionary leadership. This might have created the safe environment that took place during the acquisition even though big changes happened were about to take place. These conclusions are connected to this specific case with Marknadsanalys- Experian. We would need more research to be able to generalise this to all small companies. (Less)
