When bringing another business into your organisation it is important to get the right deal, and to get the deal right! Mergers and acquisitions can be destroyers of value if they are not assessed thoroughly and successfully integrated into the acquirer’s business. Whether it is the acquisition of a smaller organisation or a ‘merger of equals’, at Flexion we follow a methodology that is focused on a diagnostic review of the following:
- Culture, brand & talent fit
- Financial integrity
- Client resilience and fit
- Driving value during post-merger integration
