As you mention "overlap", you should mean business merger implies
network and office merger, which causes relocation of a office,

of globally unique addresses, unless you own /24.

See above.

Or, if you mean network merger remotely with VPN, small
number of hosts requiring E2E transparency may be renumbered,
but it is not so painful.
