Post-Merger (Acquisition) Integration

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) are often part of the history of most science and technology businesses. It is critical that the parent business benefits from the acquisition, and to do this requires successful integration of the acquired business into the parent.

 

Only half of acquisitions are considered successful. Why is this? Unfortunately, there is no single reason for this: it takes an experienced hand to prepare, communicate, execute and manage integrating two previously separate businesses.

Veritri Consulting staff have integrated more than 25 technology businesses around the globe, bringing together

Reduce Costs - Use the Right People for the Job

Small and medium sized technology acquisitions are often integrated by the parent company. If the parent is a serial acquirer then integrating businesses is accepted and included as part of their business culture and workflow.  However, if a business acquires less than once per year they are likely to encounter inefficiencies and costly prioritization and decision-making.

According to a 2014 EY report: The right combination: Managing integration for deal success, companies on average spent 14% of total deal value on integration. Non serial-acquirers can expect to spend more. Using the expertise at Veritri Consulting can keep costs down.

Typical Engagements

You are the leadership of a company that is about to acquire a Life Sciences business. After the deal is complete you’ll tackle the integration, right?

  • How do you know if you’re on the right track?
  • How do you know if you’ve missed something in your planning?
  • Have you focused and prioritized on the right areas for your specific integration?

You know your business the best. We know how to integrate acquisitions. Our Integration Assessment will validate your strategy for bringing the businesses together.

Integration Planning builds upon the Integration Assessment and develops the strategy into a plan. We work with the managers who will do the actual work in bringing the systems, the processes and the people of the businesses together. The end product is a custom program of projects to be executed.

We help you deliver the acquisition integration in line with your business, working with your staff who have the conflicting priorities: of integration tasks and their “day job”?

We support you managing the integration program, keeping it on track and ensuring that management is aware of the true status.

I’m a startup exec with lots of pitch experience. We’re at the beginning of a critical Series A financing and I wanted to be sure that our company presentation was as strong as possible. We selected Veritri Consulting to assist us… It was a great decision. Steve Nunn and colleagues covered every aspect of the pitch: content, flow, graphics, presentation, and overall message. By the end of the process the pitch and my delivery were professional, confident, and persuasive. If you want to be successful, Veritri is well worth the investment.
