Mergers and Acquisitions

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

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.

Post-Merger Integration

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.

Enhance Commercial Due Diligence

Due diligence can make the difference between a successful corporate marriage and a miserable one—and between stellar and poor performance in a private equity portfolio. Aurisys’s strategic due diligence provides corporate acquirers and private equity firms with maximum insight into their targets so they can make the right decision.

Due diligence is the bedrock of any prospective transaction. Largely confined to financial information two decades ago, acquisition due diligence now covers every meaningful dimension of a target company, including strategy, operations, marketing and sales, finance, leadership, and human resources.

As more corporate buyers and private equity capital chase a limited number of attractive deals, pressure is intensifying on acquirers to vet targets thoroughly. And while new data sources have made information far more available, its sheer quantities make advanced analytics essential.
