We are specialists in all aspects of capturing value from mergers and
acquisitions.  This includes identification of potential value (M&A synergy
estimation), pre-merger planning, and post merger integration.   

We have been involved in literally hundreds of M&A's and post merger
integrations.  Our expertise saves you time by giving you access to M&A and
integration best practices.  And when there is no 'perfect answer,' we can
give you the pros and cons
of different approaches, and recommend the
best ones for your situation.

We won't waste your time telling you that most mergers fail -- instead we will
help you make your deal a success.

Here is how we can help along the entire deal lifecycle:

Pre-deal:    We can help you determine the value of a potential deal by helping
identify and value synergies.  We have a great deal of experience on what synergies
are likely to be captured and how long they will take to capture.  We can also help
refine your valuation of the deal by assessing the identified deal synergies.  

Most companies wait too long to begin post merger integration planning.  We can help
you jumpstart the integration so that you are ready to hit the ground running on Day 1.

Not sure if you are ready to tackle a merger integration?  We can provide you with a
quick "Readiness Assessment" which will examine your capabilities and planned
approach, and which will identify gaps between what you have in place and what you
will need for a successful deal.


Post-deal.    We can help with the entire integration process.  We have seen virtually
every approach to merger integration, and can advise you as to which is best for you.  
Post merger integration is both an art and a science.  Our expertise can save you
considerable time and money by helping you separate the two so as not to reinvent
the wheel (on the science) while customizing the elements of the process that are
unique to your situation (the art).

All of these services can be provided on a completely variable cost fee basis.  There
is no need to sign up for expensive project based support.  Because we have seen so
many deals and merger integrations it is likely that we can begin providing advice to
you right away.
