Our target screening approach can help you identify acquisition targets. Then, we can pinpoint ways to diversify or increase market differentiation.

Stage 2: Prepare for the transaction

To help you make fully informed decisions, we use our industry experience to highlight key issues and navigate blockers in valuations, deal structure, execution efforts, and integration or separation planning. 

Throughout the diligence process, we can assess the deal, provide solutions to risks, and identify and quantify potential advantages.

Stage 3: Set up for success from transaction close

Whether you are integrating or separating an entity, we can develop a plan to deliver on the anticipated business interactions. This includes running integration-assessment workshops to developing customer retention plans. 

To reach the full value of your transaction, we may also create and design talent retention programs, and help manage change and communication initiatives to drive a smooth transaction.

Stage 4: Evolve your business to realize greater value

Due to the complex nature of a M&A deal, you may seek a more in-depth and robust understanding of potential obstacles and opportunities for your business. This may include:
