Big lenders that facilitate multi-billion dollar mergers and acquisitions often employ big consultancies to assist with the transition that follows these transactions. While these big-name firms are adept at laying the foundation for this activity, successful integration execution requires much more than a thesis. When it comes to building the framework for this type of work, a forward-thinking action plan that considers the nuances of consolidating two companies is critical. When companies find themselves in a situation where they are paying significant fees for big consultancies to give advice that’s not working, what do they do? Many have turned to Execution Specialists Group.
Our clients report deep value in ESG’s pattern recognition and “been there, done that” experience when designing an integration framework. This perspective often generates innovative solutions that busy operators are not able to see. When we advise clients on the post-transaction execution landscape, they are typically in the phase of transition where the groundwork has been laid and decisions need to be made, but leadership is unsure of where and how to begin. Through our collective work across hundreds of acquisitions, ESG understands how to streamline and optimize these critical activities, and how to ensure their success over the long term.
