The IT aspects of M&A transactions have become one of the most pervasive, complex, risky and (sometimes) expensive activities to address.
Our Technology Transformation experts work throughout the transaction life cycle, delivering due diligence; integration synergy assessments, roadmaps and program management; and carve-out planning, transition (TSA) management,and support (buy-side and sell-side).
Our Service Offerings
IT Due Diligence
We identify and report current IT strengths, weaknesses and threats, as well as future opportunities and requirements to reduce IT risks and costs, improve capability and service delivery, and add enterprise value. We often deliver tailored reports, from high-level “red flag” risk assessments to deep thesis-based analyses, with value-creation recommendations and one-time and run-rate cost models.
We identify and quantify IT-enabled merger integration synergies and value-creation opportunities. We help define an appropriate future state IT environment and design the IT roadmap to transition from current state to future-state. We manage IT integration programs at all stages and levels, including pre-close preparation, day-one execution and 100-day program management of internal and third-party/vendor resources.
Buy Side Carve-outs
We identify the IT components needed to stand-up a carved-out business, and we help select the best solutions. We examine the degree of IT systems and data entanglement, and define the separation and TSA approach, activities and timing. We identify the one-time and run-rate IT resources and costs necessary to stand-up and operate the business. We manage all aspects of IT carve-out programs, including TSA, internal and vendor resources, often in an interim IT leadership role.
Sell Side Carve-outs
We identify the IT components that need to be divested with the carved-out business. We examine the degree of IT systems and data entanglement, and define the support, separation and TSA approach, activities, timing and costs. We manage all aspects of IT carve-out programs, including TSA compliance and exit, contract novation, and internal and vendor resources, often in an interim IT leadership role.
