Most mergers and acquisitions still fail to meet all their objectives. Even when they do succeed, they often cost more, take longer, and cause greater disruption than expected. Is your business ready for your next deal?
We believe 90% of all acquisitions should add value within 18 months, and deliver their goals within 24.
Do your deals consistently achieve this level of success?
It can be better, but only if it’s different.
Robust, detailed and fully-costed plans for your next acquisition, integration, sale or separation
Professional, experienced project co-ordination: making sure things get done while you stay in control
Overseeing your team’s activities, providing experience, review and advice along the way
Tailored in-house and public events to help your own teams learn from past deals and prepare for the next one
We work with ambitious business leaders who take real ownership of their acquisition, integration and divestment plans, and who want a partner that offers objectivity, connected thinking and deep experience; someone who will work flexibly in their best interests, not just ours.
Below are some of the clients we’ve helped to deliver M&A success.
There is no doubt that our latest platform deal would not have happened with the same pace and professionalism without Beyond the Deal. I would use them again in an instant.
We built a strong relationship with Beyond the Deal through the process, and I trusted them to let me know what was good for my business, even if it might not immediately be best for them.
Beyond the Deal helped codify one of our key sources of advantage. They delivered an excellent process and product, leaving us with a guide that is the culmination of 10 years of ground-breaking M&A activity within the mining sector and a valuable toolkit that Xstrata can benefit from in the future.
Experienced, knowledgeable, open-minded, very professional and organized, but very operational and accessible, Beyond the Deal were key to our success. I would be delighted to work with them again.
Beyond the Deal was able to put theory into practice, relating it directly to specific business issues. They provided an excellent training course and on-going support.
