The M&A in death!

SCI - corp is a pioneer in consolidation of Funeral Services through a series of acquisitions. Although the funeral Service business looks very local in nature, this company, at the end of its acqusition phase, where synergies just equalled the premium paid, started to make international acquisitions. It made acquisitions in Australia(where the incineration was more common), France (where cost of funeral services was fixed) and Britain. But the question is were they successful?

Those facts were startling. I think this was one of the case HBR studies i did in the past and the result was that the company was diminishing and any furthur acquisition actually reduced their stock prices.
