Synergy Assessments and Realisation
From the inception of a deal, the purpose of an M&A is to create synergies in the long run by increasing market share, broadening the customer base, and enhancing the financial strength of the business.
Beyond the excitement of chasing and closing the deal, its success depends on astute planning and timely execution to generate expected returns and synergies. Planning for and focusing on synergy management during the pre-deal stage ensure that synergy objectives are well aligned with the execution strategy. Dealmakers should be cognisant of the fact that synergies across the areas of procurement, production, logistics and supply chain are the low-hanging fruits that can kick-start benefit realisation and build momentum in realising synergies.
- Pre-deal synergy identification and quantification
- Operational diagnostics to identify post-deal value creation levers and opportunities along with performance gaps and key operational risks
- Develop a synergy roadmap and plan, conduct all stakeholder workshops to roll out synergy targets and accountabilities
- Robust synergy tracking tools and templates for effective monitoring and realisation of revenue and cost synergies
