SETTING A NEW STANDARD FOR MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS
In the mergers and acquisitions world, much attention has been cast on closing transactions. Yet, an often forgotten part – post merger integration – tends to be one of the key drivers of success. Industry experts suggest that 70% of acquisitions fail to create value, while 50% actually destroy value.
Most investment banks focus primarily on arranging an acquisition. However, we are committed to assisting both parties throughout the integration process. Armed with extensive operational experience, we help to address strategic and management questions, and plan for the operation of the combined company before the transaction closes. This allows both parties to address potential challenges before they create problems and to fully appreciate the impact that an add-on acquisition may have.
CONTRIBUTING EXPERIENCE, CONNECTIONS, AND DEDICATION TO ENSURE YOUR SUCCESS
Our Principals have completed over forty acquisitions during the course of their careers, and possess an impressive track record of many successfully integrated targets that have created meaningful shareholder value. In addition to our proven financial expertise, our diverse team of experienced professionals has a broad range of operational experience that allows us to bring an inter-disciplinary perspective to each project. Our well-established relationships with industry experts and seasoned executives also enable us to amass critical information quickly. Most importantly, we take on only a limited number of engagements. Limiting our projects ensures that our team can focus effectively on each project and deliver successful results.
RECOGNIZING THE IMPORTANCE OF HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS
We pride ourselves in our ability to connect and communicate with entrepreneurs and business owners. Our experience as business managers, executives, and operators ensures that we quickly and accurately recognize key synergies and challenges in our assessment of potential acquisition targets. In addition, we are patient, flexible, and responsible advisors – we listen to concerns, address issues promptly, and seek to help our clients fulfill acquisitions that are truly a perfect fit for their business, both strategically and culturally.
