5 Phases of an Acquisition Integration

5 Phases of Integration: Overview

WHY USE A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO POST ACQUISITION M&A ?

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 :

  1. MAXIMIZATION OF THE DEAL AND IDENTIFIED OPPORTUNITY 
  2. AN ORDERED APPROACH TO EACH DEAL 
  3. ENSURING THE ACQUIRING ORGANIZATION"S RESOURCES ARE EFFICIENTLY UTILIZED
  4. CONFIDENTIAL TRACKING OF THE  INTEGRATION'S RESULTS AGAINST THE ORIGINAL DEAL PERIMETERS
  5. PEACE OF MIND THAT THE ORIGINAL DEAL IS BEING FOLLOWED THROUGH TO COMPLETION


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.
