Merger + Acquisition Support
Understand Technology's Role during Mergers and Acquisitions
We have experience supporting various business ownership transitions – from IPO to acquisition (both sides) and divestiture. We help clients assess and close value gaps as they prepare for a transaction. Our proprietary 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 enhance business valuations. We perform due diligence on acquisition targets from a technology perspective on the buy-side, support the integration of newly merged businesses and execute business unit divestitures.
For businesses thinking about a sale, we work to ensure your systems and infrastructure are in a strong position to create maximum value for the sale.

A successful merger or acquisition relies on a smooth integration of financial, operational and organizational systems. We deliver insightful preparation and skilled integration to provide your executive team with the confidence to move forward. This concept was omitted in the edit the integration of financial, operational and organizational systems needs to be completed in a way that ensures the business continues to run smoothly. The point isn’t that we prepare the team to move forward. The point is that without a successful integration the business won’t run smoothly operationally. They won’t get good reporting from the acquired or merged company if the information isn’t in their own systems.
How can Aldrich Technology help maintain business continuity during a merger or acquisition?
Our expert team oversees the integration of processes, people, culture and technology and adds objectivity in decision-making to avoid politically-influenced or technology-driven mistakes. Our mission is to guide the transition to ensure that the merger or acquisition’s original intent is realized.
Technology and Operations Due Diligence
Inadequate due diligence is one of the primary reasons a merger or acquisition fails to achieve its 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 business’s operations to discover issues that standard due diligence methods may miss.
What benefits does a different approach to due diligence provide?
Our unique approach to due diligence has proved to reveal issues that even the most sophisticated firms overlook. Our knowledge of operations and technology will help reduce time to integration, avoid potential liability and realize maximum value.
