We don’t have to tell you that. In the face of constant, fast-paced change, you know that today’s decisions define tomorrow’s value: making them more high stakes than ever before.

Success depends on being a prepared seller for strategic divestitures
When a large multinational technology distributor began to focus on the acquisition of another multinational business that it thought would enable its future business strategy, there were many challenges to face. The size of the deal–it was a multi-billion dollar carve-out from the seller–and the number of people, facilities, cultural differences and systems involved, suggested a potentially rocky road to success.
Both the buyer and acquired company had global footprints in over 35 countries, a combined employee base of over 15,000 and hundreds of thousands of combined customers. Imagine the depth of due diligence required across multiple functions just to get an understanding of the company. Then imagine the amount of effort and manpower it would take to integrate the two companies. Finally, consider the planning and execution needed to achieve a smooth Day One cut-over to operating as a combined entity, less than nine months from deal signing. How was the company going to deliver on potential synergies and create a path to future growth and sales?
