The team

M&A | Restructuring and Cost Transformation

Our mandate is to enable our clients' ability to grow, optimize, and fundamentally change the nature of their business and competitive position. We do this via M&A, divestiture, and restructuring services from beginning to end. Our Offering enables pre-deal and post-deal integration, divestiture, and major restructuring/cost transformation activities to achieve/exceed deal value, synergy targets, or strategic cost takeout objectives.

M&A Strategy and Diligence aids clients in optimizing their portfolio, finding the right targets and assessing the risk profile to ensure it meets strategic objectives. We work with senior executives to define how they employ M&A-in alignment with their corporate strategy-to drive profitable growth and enable them to compete effectively in their industry. This is provided through corporate strategy, inorganic growth paths, target profiles and investment thesis. Our Commercial Diligence team tests the information that informs a client's M&A deal valuation and post-merger acquisition plan. We can validate a target company's recurring revenue, revenue growth, and margin sustainability, as well as conduct rapid primary research on its markets, customers, suppliers, and competitors virtually anywhere in the world. Through strategic diligence, we also assess potential upside opportunities that the business may not be taking advantage of, and we identify possible downside risks that could jeopardize the near term or ongoing value of the deal. Our Operational Diligence professionals can assist clients with critically evaluating a target's attractiveness through operational assessments and risk mitigation strategies. We link these findings to deal value for informed transaction decision-making, negotiations, and eventual strategic and financial value realization.
