Renoir has significant experience in working with Private Equity companies as well as clients interested in expanding their business. Whilst many PE companies look at a possible acquisition purely from a financial point of view, Renoir helps its clients look at an acquisition from a much wider perspective. We give you the ability to examine the potential of the company, not just its past and current financial situation.
Through a better understanding of your target’s market, the distribution channels, the operations and the managerial dimensions, you will gain knowledge that will support your acquisition decision or your investment strategy.
Additionally, through our investigation, we will also determine the improvement areas, quantify the improvement potential, and propose an implementation plan to realise the changes after acquisition, along with our unique commitment to deliver the agreed goals. This will enable you realise rapid and significant improvements in shareholder value within months, rather than years.
Post Merger Integrations hold great potential, yet often fail, with only 50% actually achieving their objectives. Integration planning should begin as early as possible, to avoid any loss of talent. It’s the time for effective communication so that the acquisition or merger can be ‘sold’ to employees as a benefit to them, as well as the organisation. Remember, acquisitions and mergers are exciting for those in the loop, but frightening for everyone else, so don’t expect enthusiastic cheers from everyone.
Renoir’s Integration approach aims to help clients from a tactical perspective, by ensuring a structured critical path through both the planning and execution stages of an Integration program, to achieve the expected financial and non financial benefits. This approach allows for the early identification of problems and risks to the Integration process and an effective risk minimisation and problem resolution process. Having a third party involved also provides additional, experienced, and objective support during the very difficult transition period, avoiding the pitfalls of “them versus us” (acquirers versus acquired) thinking.
Renoir facilitates the integration of both business activities and culture, ensuring minimal disruption on production and customer satisfaction, while keeping our objective eyes and ears wide open to detect potential issues. This is done while supporting your people – existing and new - in making any changes to systems and processes to ensure that the expected synergy and benefits are realised.
