Lack of proper due diligence. Daiichi, in its eagerness to tap the expertise of a generic drug maker, took the risk of buying Ranbaxy for top dollar.

Global Scenario Of M&A Deals<br /><ul><li>Forlarge firms, mergers are a response to expected excess capacity that is triggered by patent expirations and gaps in the pipeline of follow-on products, which depresses expected future earnings growth.
Mergers are in fact often rationalized as offering an opportunity to reduce overhead and other costs, implying expectations of economies of scale.
For small firms mergers appear to be primarily an exit strategy for firms that are in financial trouble </li></li></ul><li>References<br /><ul><li>http://www.moneycontrol.com/news/business/daiichi-acquires-525ranbaxy_362194.html
