Mergers and acquisitions can create immediate value opportunities, improve your competitive position, and provide a solid foundation for growth.
ScottMadden has assisted companies in assessing potential merger opportunities. This work has included determination of possible merger synergies, competitive strategic assessments of peer companies, regulatory and political implications, and potential financial effects.
Our team also has deep experience assisting clients in the integration of merged/acquired operations. In our Energy practice, we have supported integration of nuclear operations, fossil operations, wholesale trading, energy delivery, and retail to name but a few. We are the only consulting firm with experience planning market mitigation in response to a Department of Justice order.
Within and outside of the energy industry, we are adept at integrating corporate support functions, including finance and accounting, human resources, information technology, supply chain, and similar back-office operations. Our work includes shifting support functions to best-fit delivery models, selecting operating locations, aligning policies and processes, selecting and migrating to best-fit technologies and applications, and selecting and transitioning the best-skilled talent to the integrated operation. Many mergers are founded on synergies from back-office operations, and ScottMadden is highly experienced at working with our clients to realize these savings.
