Post-Merger Integration and Divestiture Services

Create and capture value from the start

The merging or de-merging of two or more organisations triggers a flood of complexities. The best acquirers follow a structured and disciplined approach, with clear strategic objectives, detailed implementation plans, and a focus on creating and capturing value from the start.

We bring together some of the most experienced and dedicated post-merger integration and divestiture teams across our global network to deliver results for all industry sectors and have supported some of the largest transactions globally.

We help maximise the benefits from integrations with world-class programme management skills and robust operational and financial analysis expertise.

Our approach is highly pragmatic and is based on extensive experience of supporting clients with:

First, we’ll develop a focused due diligence exercise in order to provide comfort and confidence to all stakeholders over standalone operations. Then, we’ll work with finance teams and stakeholders to ensure financial information is prepared in compliance with the applicable accounting standards and provides a sound basis for the company’s future reporting as a listed entity.

We help by designing and establishing the separation programme and governance structure and work with management teams to prepare an operational handbook to identify the arrangements, the proposed Day 1 solutions (including transitional services) and the fully standalone model and related separation cost impact.

Interested in applying a private equity approach to deliver value from acquisitions? We can help by executing a Pilot Value Creation Plan (VCP) to demonstrate the concept for key stakeholders. Working closely with management teams we’ll identify value creation opportunities across commercial, operations, working capital, and tax streams. Key aspects of the process include quantifying value creation opportunities and developing implementation plans, governance structures and dashboards to monitor results.
