Reconsidering Mergers—Getting Ready for Day One

The stated promise of most, if not every merger is that the newly-formed entity will be better, stronger, faster, smarter, and/or more profitable than the previous organizations operating independently.  Yet few mergers achieve such lofty commitments.

We want your merger to be different—we want it to deliver more than its promises.

Leveraging our more than 25 years of experience in working with mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures, we work with your organization to create the desired synergies from the earliest stages of planning.  Rather than slamming the organizations together, we look for innovative means of making early, impactful statements about your organization to your key audiences:

Organizational leadership—to move beyond the management of day-to-day activities to the development of high-impact vision that engages all of the organization’s key stakeholders in the creation of an exciting future.

Shareholders or owners—to build confidence that continuing to invest in your business will produce the desired dividends;

Customers—to demonstrate the value that affiliation with your organization affords—and to show that the value increases over time;

Employees—to challenge employees to be a part of shaping the organization that is unfolding, rather than sitting on the sidelines –watching, criticizing, and missing out on the opportunity of making history.

Like a grand opening of a retail store, or the opening night of a dramatic or musical production, we believe that Day One of the merger has to be carefully considered  in order to produce the type of early wins that are essential to the newly-merged organization’s long-term success.

Let us leverage our experience in this critical arena in such a way that it saves you time and money and builds long-term reputation and impact.  Our team includes individuals who have worked with mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures in a variety of settings with a variety of clients.

Call us.  We’re ready, reasonable, and results-focused.
