Mergers & Acquisitions
Mergers, acquisitions and divestitures create several challenges for organizations and their stakeholders. Due to the size of today’s transactions, it’s imperative that an organization has the most accurate picture of its current and future capital and operating expenditures to maximize the cost synergies envisioned in the transaction. IT is often a significant and sometimes overlooked component of many deals.
PSC has the business and technical expertise to help evaluate, structure, and complete a deal from an IT perspective. We employ a diverse team familiar with the technologies found in most transactions, helping organizations understand the cost implications of mergers and acquisitions. With years of experience in a wide range of deals, our M&A specialists can quickly identify and respond to the opportunities and challenges associated with most deals.
When planning a merger or acquisition, organizations want to know if the existing information systems will economically and effectively support the anticipated growth. They want to know if they have the right mix of scalable and compatible components to support present and future business needs, and if not, the cost to get them there.
PSC has demonstrated experience in the due diligence phase, where understanding the underlying IT cost and impact often brings favorable adjustments to the deal’s price and structure. We often are asked to lend advice and expertise on such topics as scalability, appropriateness, and the longer term value of IT.
And we don’t stop there. Services we perform after the close help organizations accelerate and maximize IT-related cost synergies. Our proven M&A methodology gives organizations a “roadmap” and transition plan that accelerates the integration process and maximizes synergies as quickly and efficiently as possible. And because building an M&A engine and managing the integration can be a serious distraction from your core daily functions and long-term strategies, PSC provides the integration support that can free up your key resources for your other business-critical initiatives.
