Organisations initiate mergers and acquisitions with the goal of creating synergies between businesses. Once you’re about to close the deal, time’s of the essence: the sooner you integrate and streamline teams and operations, the quicker you’re able to realise the benefits of your new alliance and the synergies you counted on.
In the meantime, people and processes from each business continue to operate separately, reducing efficiency and making integration increasingly difficult.To successfully blend different working styles and strategies, it’s essential to establish priorities and develop and implement an integration plan as quickly, seamlessly and tax-efficiently as possible.
Our multidisciplinary transactions specialists will help you create and execute a clear and effective integration strategy. We’ll work alongside you to gain a deep understanding of your business and goals and to develop a workstream and timeframe aligned with your objectives. We assist with all aspects of your business integration including tax, legal, people and organisation and project management.
We can also advise from operational and IT integration perspectives, so you can realise the benefits of the deal quickly and smoothly. In the case of a cross-border transaction, we’ll call upon our extensive international PwC Network to assist with every facet of your post-deal integration, while remaining your single point of contact throughout the process.
