A smooth, reliable integration process is essential to realize the full value of an acquisition or merger. This means having the right strategy, project governance, people, and targets in place. We help businesses put together pragmatic and efficient approaches focused on value creation and business continuity that leverage the talent of your team.
Acquisitions and mergers come with high financial and operational expectations, but are highly complex in their execution. Success requires a broad range of experience and expertise.
As your daily partner, our team will work with you to develop an ambitious yet realistic integration strategy for you acquisition, before and after closing.
We will construct a tailored integration approach in line with the deal rationale: one that identifies value creation opportunities while outlining the associated challenges and risks. Through clear roadmaps for change and integration, we help find the fastest, risk-free way to a successful transition. A transition that allows you and your people to get on with your long-term business objectives.
From due diligence to post-closing execution, our team emphasises collaboration to help you:
- Develop a strong business case for the acquisition
- Design and run a reliable Project Management Office to drive decision making, manage all interdependencies and activate your resources
- Define and track synergies and initiatives to fulfil the business case
- Design an operating model for the combined businesses
- Create a change management plan that fosters successful integration
- Address individual functional challenges across Sales & Marketing, Operations, Finance, HR, and IT
As a truly integrated firm, we will also quickly deploy specialist teams to support you with the implementation of vital, specialist issues, such as a post-deal tax strategy, legal compliance and IT integration.
