The failure of the merger...
The failure of the merger between two leading competitors in the global computer industry, Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) and Compaq Computer Corporation (Compaq) failed as the synergies identified prior to the merger did not materialize. You have been asked to look at this failed merger and analyse the factors involved.

(LO1, LO2, LO3, LO4 see below) (35 MARKS)
