How can we help
A great corporate strategy combines five elements: a bold yet realistic ambition, a carefully considered portfolio of assets, smart financial choices, a keen understanding of your “parenting advantages,” and, ultimately, a transformation roadmap that specifies the actions and decisions that will get you where you want to go. We integrate these five elements, paying close attention to the role that finance plays, including access to capital, risk management, building M&A capabilities and more. The result is a clear plan of action to reach your goals, with the ability to flex in response to technological disruptions, changing customer needs and other factors.
Your M&A strategy should be a logical extension of your growth strategy, and should be based on a disciplined and repeatable model that supports frequent, ever larger deals.
Our industry-leading work spans corporate strategy, private-equity investing and related disciplines. With more than 9,000 projects completed across virtually all industries and geographies we bring unparalleled experience and expertise to every facet of M&A consulting.
We'll work with you to:
Advise on strategy and screening, due diligence, integration, divestitures and separations, joint ventures/alliances, corporate finance, and much more.
Apply a comprehensive set of best-in-class diagnostics, frameworks, proprietary benchmarks and other analytics tools and capabilities to guide target prioritization and screening, integration workflows and other essential elements of successful M&A.
