Creating value from M&A, transactions, and post-merger integration depends on making the right strategic decisions and proactively managing the business portfolio over time. More than half of all M&A transactions and post-merger integrations end up destroying value.
These deals are not only complex but also—for many companies—infrequent. Aurisys offers the expertise and capabilities to help clients maximize the value of these deals at each stage of a transaction.
We support businesses with end-to-end transaction excellence, including strategic decision making in mergers and acquisitions, preparing and executing divestitures and joint ventures, supporting IPOs and spinoffs, and creating winning strategies for post-merger integration.
Over the past ten years, we have supported more than 7,000 transactions. With more than 300 M&A, transactions, and post-merger integration professionals worldwide, we help both corporate and private equity clients execute deals efficiently and, more important, maximize value. Our experts collaborate closely with your own experts to help you navigate the journey we undertake together. They also speak the language of investors, investment bankers, and lawyers.
Enabling Corporate Carve-Outs
Our carve-out consultants guide companies through the complex carve-out process from end to end. Whether your goal is a trade sale, a spinoff, or an IPO, we help maximize transaction value and minimize business disruption—positioning the parent and new enterprises to thrive on day one and beyond.
Aurisys brings a distinctly holistic, end-to-end approach to these high-stakes transactions. Our strategic insight and deep industry expertise enable us to advise clients throughout the carve-out continuum.
We set you up for success with our clear focus on value, our deep expertise in strategy and business, our experience with complex carve-outs, and our structured approach, which pushes well beyond a purely mechanical separation exercise. We work shoulder-to-shoulder with you to boost the new entity’s value to shareholders and prospective buyers and ensure business continuity from day one.
Critically, we also reduce distractions, freeing you to focus on vital day-to-day operations. After all, even the most profitable carve-out is only as successful as the business you hold when the signatures are dry.
Mergers and Acquisitions
The initial phase in mergers and acquisitions seems to be the simplest: choosing the M&A target. Yet acquirers often pursue targets opportunistically, rather than methodically, contributing to high failure rates. Aurisys’s mergers and acquisitions consultants help clients create the strategic, replicable merger and acquisition processes that drive successful corporate unions.
Joint ventures promise a lot. But the majority don’t deliver. Aurisys helps companies get more value from these relationships by avoiding common pitfalls throughout the joint venture life cycle. While joint ventures do have tremendous potential to create value, many of these deals—especially international joint ventures—end up delivering fewer benefits than the partners expected.
Companies thrive by expanding, not shrinking. Yet shedding assets can create substantial benefits. The crucial factor: handling divestitures adeptly. Aurisys delivers strategic and financial insight throughout the divestiture process, enabling both the parent and the new business to succeed.
One of the biggest misperceptions about post-merger integration is that it can simply be tacked on to existing day-to-day responsibilities. That’s wishful thinking—and a recipe for unrealized value. Aurisys’s framework for a successful PMI has helped clients capture 9% more value from their M&A deals.
Principal Investors and Private Equity
With private capital growing fast, principal investors and private equity firms have new opportunities to make a positive difference in the world and generate unprecedented value. Aurisys helps them navigate and seize investment opportunities in a rapidly changing world.
Vendor Due Diligence
Vendor due diligence turns traditional due diligence on its head. By applying rigorous analysis to assets destined for sale from the perspective of the buyer, BCG’s vendor due diligence consulting services help companies minimize risks, speed the sales process, and maximize value creation.
For companies seeking to drive innovation, gain vital capabilities, or leverage the benefits of scale, a strategic alliance may be the ideal collaboration model. We help companies design and implement such alliances, with a clear focus on capturing their full potential.
