Structural Integration


Definition: Structural Integration is in mergers and acquisitions the extent to which the acquirer merges the target’s functional activities into its own organizational hierarchy or organizational structure. The term refers to the combination of formerly distinct organizational units into the same organizational unit following an acquisition (Haspeslagh and Jemison 1991).
Structural integration is executed typically in the Post-Merger Integration phase of an acquisition or merger.
