Understand Technology's Role during Mergers and Acquisitions
Maximizing value during the merger and acquisition transition process
Our technology knowledge increases value for your transactions with measurable financial impact.
We have supported a variety of business ownership transitions – from IPO, to acquisition (both sides) to divestiture. We help clients assess and close value gaps as they prepare for an acquisition or IPO. Our proprietary M&A/IPO Preparedness Assessment Tool reveals both latent issues and value-enhancing opportunities that could impact a deal closure, lengthen or shorten an owner earn-out period or depress or enhance valuations. On the buy-side, we perform due diligence on acquisition targets from a technology perspective, support the integration of newly merged businesses and execute business unit divestitures.

We deliver insightful preparation and skilled integration to provide your executive team with the confidence to move forward.

Technology and Operations Due Diligence
Inadequate due diligence is one of the primary reasons that M&A transactions fail to achieve their intended results. We don’t just run through the routine, surface-level questions; we know how to dig deep by having conversations with people working in the operations of the business to discover problems that standard due diligence methods miss.
What benefits does a different approach to due diligence provide?
Our unique approach to due diligence has been proven to reveal issues that even the most sophisticated firms overlook. We help you reduce time to integration, avoid high liability and realize favorable clawbacks.
Questions We Help Answer
- What are the elements of an in-depth due diligence method?
