In the cut-and-thrust excitement of an ongoing transaction, it’s all too easy to lose sight of the future – to life after the deal, as it were.
While it is of course of vital importance to devote significant efforts to pre-deal structuring and valuation, it’s important to remember that a lot of value remains to be realized even when the right price has been agreed upon. Countless research studies over the years have measured this value leakage, which usually arises because the assumptions that have been made as to cost reductions, growth drivers or synergy benefits are not fully realized.
Our post-acquisition services are designed to ensure sustainability, stability and maximized value after the deal. We seek to:
- Instill sound governance structures, boost working capital and cash flow management
- Strengthen information systems and controls for better decision making
- Institutionalize compliance and reporting mechanisms, and provide an environment in which people can excel
