The power of an end-to-end approach
The issue:

A small to medium corporate* was looking to grow locally and also expand into Asia Pacific. They were facing challenges with their product line and were also wanting to diversify their business – shifting from where they are now to where they needed to be. From a brand and reputation point of view they wanted to establish their point of difference (quickly) and ensure they had the best talent and leaders to take their business to the next level.

There was also a need to transform and be future-ready to tackle the ongoing challenges of keeping their consumers engaged, interested and loyal. This corporate wanted an adviser who could assist them in shaping and refining their strategic thinking as well as providing assistance throughout the process which was relatively foreign to them, across every stage of M&A.

The impact:

We brought together the best capabilities, locally and globally, to tackle each and every opportunity for this client. We focused on creating, capturing and driving maximum value fuelled by our technology solutions and people – providing this organisation with the right action, for every stage of their transaction.



Disclaimer:

*This M&A case study is a hypothetical scenario, bringing to life the actions being taken across an M&A transaction at each and every step. It is inspired by the experience of our cutting-edge M&A team during their industry-leading work across the sector. Throughout the case study we refer to the organisation as a small to medium corporate in the first instance and then as a “client” in the rest of the document – noting that “client” is used in a hypothetical sense for this particular scenario. As always, before considering or accepting any engagement in the M&A Lifecycle, full conflict and independence checks should be undertaken and considered in the nature of work we seek to undertake with our clients.
