Our belief is that mergers succeed when the plan, the team and the culture are both optimal and aligned, from day one. So finding the right merger partner is – and should be – a complex challenge. All the possibilities, the obvious and the more lateral ones, must be fully explored. Finding and making the right connections is part of our DNA, and we will not recommend a merger unless the transaction has all three attributes.
Growth by acquisition is a priority on many corporate agendas. Making a successful acquisition begins with effective research to uncover all targets that could potentially add real value to your company. That research often needs to take place in a global context. Effective research is a function of experience, discipline and tenacity. We also have a long record of helping clients think outside their normal comfort zone in defining their acquisition strategies to ensure that all strategic alternatives have been thought through.
