Acquisitions

Integration

As experts in every area of the transaction process, we are able to offer an integrated range of services to our clients post-acquisition, adding value to their company and safeguarding their plans.

One such area is the preparation of a post-acquisition business plan, which should be drafted soon after a target has become a real prospect. Too many acquisitions fail because they do not consider business integration early enough.

We will also guide you through other aspects of the post-acquisition planning phase, anticipating the usual opportunities and issues that arise when a business is acquired ensuring you are familiar with them, and helping you deal with both effectively.

Typically such matters include:

  • Consolidated financial reporting
  • Creation of a remodelling strategy post-acquisition 
  • Implementation of the business plan
  • Inherited employee issues:
    • Job specifications
    • Salary and bonus structures
    • Employee share option incentives (EMI)
  • Post-acquisition team responsibilities
  • Post-acquisition cash planning including:
    • Implementation of group procedures and practices
    • Cash flow requirements post-acquisition
    • Combined debtor profile
    • Working capital/liquidity of group
    • Investment requirements
This post-acquisition opportunity is usually significant, but so are the risks, and our experience can help you deliver your objectives.
