M&A Advisory

Conducting strategic assessments to define the strategy for integration, identifying the current “best of breed” and leading practices, program and project management, reputational & change management, creating competency models and service management frameworks.

While 80% of merging companies say they want more sales from their deals, in most cases they become so focused on integration and cost cutting that they take their eyes off their customers, and revenue growth actually declines.

Studies continue to highlight that in excess of 50% of M&A programmes fail, and do so for a myriad of reasons; from the lack of focus on shareholder value in the initial PMI objectives, through lack of detailed planning and poor adherence to timescales to a limited focus on resources and transitional requirements, and insufficient attention to interdependencies across the complete PMI programme. The list goes on.

Helping the combined organisation to navigate that critical integration journey, Novo Altum brings the expert consultants and tools together to assure a singular focus on reducing complexity; delivering an effective program of standardisation and simplification, and creating the unifying set of values and behaviours that will assure success.
