Transactions are never easy, and many don’t end up achieving their expected return. At V2A, we help companies succeed in their merger, acquisition or joint venture efforts by supporting them through four key areas: strategy, execution planning, due diligence and integration.
Areas of Expertise
- Acquisition Strategy
For M&A’s to be successful, a well-defined strategy must be in place. At V2A, strategy is at the heart of our practice. We help organizations identify how a transaction can serve to achieve growth or profitability goals and what entities may be appropriate targets.
- Due Diligence Support
Working hand in hand with client team members and other advisors, we assist in asking the right questions with a refined due diligence process that leads to a clear understanding of the target’s capabilities.
- Pre-close Merger Planning
Time is of the essence in the critical stages from agreement to closing to operation. We help organizations define its integration strategy, develop integration plans, and establish synergy targets and teams and performance metrics. At the same time, we assist in developing the plan and executing the thousands of elements that need to happen before the change in ownership takes place. Our experience ensures that details, from tactical to strategic, are accounted for.
- Post-merger Integration
Much time and effort is often invested in executing an acquisition, merger or joint venture, yet many transactions fail to live to their expectations because of poor execution. V2A’s approach to post-merger integration involves extensive cross-functional coordination, robust project management of timelines and interdependencies and the explicit pursuit of tangible benefits. We also focus on controlling risk and capturing synergies and managing organizational and cultural integration. For joint ventures, the focus is on ensuring clarity of purpose and priorities. As an independent agent, we have facilitated many joint efforts where we assist in developing the appropriate structures and framework for success.
