Need to answer for following questions:

2. Was the high price paid for Beam worth it? Was there too much debt involved?
3. How should Beam Suntory resolve its cultural differences and accelerate the integration to realize potential synergies?
4. How should Suntory approach Beam to achieve the optimal level of post-acquisition integration?
5. Going forward, what challenges is Suntory facing, and how should the company tackle them?
