Functional Integration & Carve Outs

Tailored plans from tested experiences

​ In the same way that constructing a building from a vision cast in the blueprint requires intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the components and coordination of the subcontractors, the same is true with post-merger integration and carve outs/divestitures. Time inexorably marches on, and without extensive integration knowledge and experience, along with well-honed methodologies, tools, and resources, the process can become bogged down, costs can soar, and synergy targets can rapidly fall by the wayside.

Fast track

Deloitte's M&A Functional Integration & Carve Outs practice offers the knowledge, experience, and effective practices gained over the course of thousands of transactions.

We have clearly defined integration and carve out methodologies by corporate function, including finance, human resources, information technology, research and development, sales and marketing, and supply chain. We can provide a tailored plan based on tested experiences. This approach can save time and mitigate risk at each step of the integration or carve out.
