Tactical Execution of the Deal Strategy

Well-executed M&A transactions require attention throughout the entire process. Our Merger Integration team is a talented group with expertise in multiple disciplines covering pre-close operational due diligence all the way through post-close merger integration support. We combine deep industry experience with a collaborative approach to detect early where operational value levers exist, develop implementation plans, and drive realization from Day 1 through Day 100 and beyond.

No two business combinations are alike, which is why our implementation plans are customized just for your transaction. Our Merger Integration team ensures business continuity and operational success in any part of the post-close integration phase, including:

  • Pre-close integration planning
  • Defining new operating model
  • Day 1 readiness assessment
  • Integration management office
  • Change management
  • Post-close plans (Day 1 to 100 checklists)
  • Synergy identification & realization
  • Value creation & customer retention

Our Merger Integration team also specializes in supply chain strategy and transformation for Private Equity portfolio companies in the Consumer Products and Manufacturing, Distribution & Logistics industries. When supply chain costs make up a substantial percentage of total cost, optimal physical and organizational consolidation is essential for the success of post-merger integration. Our M&A team is in lockstep with you and can enable synergy realization and create additional value during the integration phase in the following areas:

  • Organizational optimization
  • Procurement optimization
  • Inventory optimization
  • Transportation optimization (inbound through outbound)
  • Network optimization (plant, distribution centers, retail)
