Delivering deal value is far from a mystery, even in today’s dynamic deal environment. The most experienced dealmakers say they know what to do—and are reporting success. But that success is getting harder to come by and despite the best of intentions, integrations too often fall short of meeting set expectations.
Converting integration strategy into detailed actions that align people, process, and systems with integration objectives requires an effective governance structure - an Integration Management Office.
We help clients achieve rapid integrations that fully realize desired synergies and allow them to return to a "business as usual" environment as quickly as possible after a deal. This helps increase shareholder value, frees up human and financial capital for reinvestment in core operations, and enables serial acquirers to execute a greater number of transactions in shorter periods of time.
We also help clients increase their operations knowledge of target companies during due diligence to identify opportunities and risks for post-close value capture.
Our integration projects span both enterprise wide and function specific integration management and tactical execution with a focus on realizing deal objectives and synergies. Below are some examples of the type of services and activities we offer.
Our M&A integration publications span both enterprise wide, functional, and cross-functional integration management and tactical execution with a focus on realizing deal objectives and synergies.
