How can we help?

Pre-deal assessments

Before acquiring a business, you put a lot of effort into conducting due diligence (DD) to understand the target better. We find that there is often a disconnect between DD and actually starting to build the business once you have acquired it. Our pre-deal assessments aim to close that gap by creating a clear view of the key value-creation workstreams. A lot of focus is placed on structuring each workstream, and understanding what exactly is required to build out each of them: what phases are needed, how to best execute them, who should be in the lead, how to prioritize, and what investments would be required to unlock the value.
