Mergers, Acquisitions, Joint Ventures, De-mergers and Divestments

Mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, de-mergers and divestments are incisive, challenging and complex at the best of times.  Technology can make or break the success of a merger, acquisition or divestment. It represents at least 25 percent of the activity and directly impacts more than half of the overall integration or separation.

It’s also highly complex, driven by time pressure to maximise value returns while maintaining the core business – making it one of the most challenging initiatives you will ever undertake. If not planned properly, technology issues can quickly result in delays, budget blowouts and put the deal at risk. Data shows 46 percent of merger and acquisition programs fail post-commitment due to poor integration concepts.

We understand this more than most – we are the specialists that ASX100 organisations rely on to recover their failing merger, acquisition and divestment programs when they have tried to do it themselves or let down by large consulting vendors.

We have successfully delivered some of the most complex mergers, acquisitions and divestments in Australia’s most regulated sectors. We understand the challenges, we have the specialist teams, and we have the exclusive methods and tools needed to successfully deliver the program; first time.

Call us first to avoid having to request budget extensions to fix work you’ve already paid for (and having to explain why).
