Mergers & Acquisitions Process – Planning, Integration and Due Diligence Consulting

Mergers & Acquisitions Consultants - M&A

Group50 offers a unique approach to successfully overcoming the standard result of 83% of acquisitions not meeting their financial commitments. Our approach requires 5 stages of activity. Each stage is designed to alignintegrate and optimize the combined companies with a focus on meeting or exceeding the expected returns.  Our Mergers and Acquisitions Methodology consists of 5 stages as shown below and can be used as part of a portfolio process and for middle market companies who don’t have the expertise for effective planning, integration and due diligence.


Mergers and Acquisitions Integration Process

Mergers & Acquisitions Consulting

We work closely with both organizations to understand their strengths and weaknesses in processes and skill sets. We also identify the strategic and operating gaps that the combined entity will face and create an integration roadmap that addresses these. Because our specialty is implementation, we have experts in:

  1. Program management
  2. Digital and Information Technology
  3. Human Capital – Organization Design, Performance Management, Change Management
  4. Business Process Redesign

Our mergers & acquisitions consultants have led, planned and implemented the integration of mergers and acquisitions in many different industries and companies of all sizes including P&G, GE, Black & Decker, Champion Arrowhead, Sunbeam and many others. We understand strategic execution and how to plan and implement the entire process from conception to completion. The details of our process can be seen in our Post Merger Integration Playbook. 

We have also set up relationships with strategic partners who complement our capabilities:

  • Funding partners who are capable of funding deals of up to $250M
  • Information Technology
  • Quality of earnings
  • Due diligence
  • Taxation
  • Legal
