The Challenge of M&A
The specifics of a successful negotiation and the closing of a difficult deal are typically well documented and celebrated within the broader business environment and media. But the post acquisition process, adaptation and integration to deliver the projected synergies and the final results initially identified are not usually tracked as closely.
POST ACQUISITION IS WHERE THE VALUE OF A DEAL IS TRULY REALIZED,
IT IS THE SCORE CARD OF A DEAL'S TRUE VALUE.
The Trivista Group are experts at realizing the initial value of an acquisition and delivering that value using a proprietary Integration Delivery Process .
Trivista looks systematically at any Integration in 5 differentiated phases. Each phase is split into a list of specific actions customized for each of the acquiring company's functional departments and integration leads e.g Finance, Sales, Property Management etc.
As a project progresses the predetermined value of the acquisition is monitored to ensure the cost savings and objectives are on track. This allows a course modification or re-calibration as new circumstances dictate.
THE END RESULT :
Project Management System:
Trivista uses a proprietary cloud based Project Management software to track all tasks, Each task list is customized to the particular acquisition and tracks the owner and the status of the project for each task. Reminders are automatically sent daily on tasks in progress. Visibility is given to the client's senior team so internal tracking of the daily progress is straight forward and transparent, accessible from even a mobile device.
