M&A Support

How can you manage the business risk associated with merger and acquisition due diligence, business valuation, and transition management planning and execution? Talcott Ridge can help dramatically reduce deal risk and provide a perspective into the health and potential of the M&A candidate and, if needed, assist in post-acquisition improvement.

We can support your M&A process by rapidly conducting an on-site assessment of operational capability, organizational mindset, management system and leadership behaviors. The assessment output is oriented to provide critical insight into the candidate’s reported historical financial and operational performance considering the present leadership, management system, and so forth. In other words, how real, sustainable, and scalable is the claimed performance? This type of rigor can be extended to the assessment of pro forma financial performance targets and the improvement assumptions implicit within the valuation. Here, Talcott Ridge can help evaluate the opportunity to meet or exceed these assumptions, in both magnitude and timing, and the means by which they can be achieved. Ultimately, this work can serve as a foundation for post-M&A transition management and beyond.
