The merging of two or more organizations is complex and fraught with peril. The evidence is clear: the best mergers or acquisitions follow a structured and disciplined approach, with clear strategic objectives, detailed implementation plans and a focus on creating and capturing value.
Sounds simple enough. But the road of business is littered with failed attempts to bring two companies together. The resulting loss in shareholder value is staggering. It doesn't have to be that way.
Successful strategic acquirers use process and discipline to avoid so many of the M&A failures that impair and destroy shareholder, customer and employee value. But of course, the value of M&A transactions lies in the execution and not the promise.
Our M&A team has the broad and varied experience in multiple types of transactions including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures and alliance coupled with deep functional and industry expertise to deliver on that promise. Our approach is to assist our clients in developing the structure and discipline to more effectively identify, execute and integrate their deals. Our approach allows you to "win" at the M&A game by creating and capture value.
