    Re: synergy

    Ex: If Company A has an excellent product but lousy distribution whereas Company B has a great distribution system but poor products, the companies could create synergy with a merger.

    Ex: A merger of two oil companies, one with a superior distribution network and the other with more reserves, would have synergy and would be expected to result in higher earnings per share than previously.

    Re: synergy

    Could synergy be used in other contexts other than that?

    I mean, does it absolutely have to do with companies?

    According to Cambridge:

    "the combined power of a group of things when they are working together which is greater than the total power achieved by each working separately:"

    Example:
    Team work at its best results in a synergy that can be very productive.


    Could I say:

    Their synergy has given some excellent results.

    It has more than one meaning, which is why I provided you with a link to a dictionary.

    All the best.
