Rebalancing your growth portfolio

Successful companies rebalance their portfolios, thinking about which businesses to grow and which to divest, as to avoid earnings dilution and cash flow demands.

Make strategic mergers, acquisitions, or divestitures to optimise product portfolios and provide cost and operating synergies

Mergers and acquisitions are far more challenging than most companies anticipated, and the expected synergies may never be realised. Merger integration calls for organisation restructuring, enhanced internal communications to address cultural integration, a shared decision-making system, talent management, compensation incentives, and robust employee and customer retention tactics.

Whether it is conducting due diligence, implementing transition plans, or integrating cultures, our resources can have a positive impact and deliver sustainable results.

Alliances and joint ventures serve many purposes, including filling gaps in capabilities or facilitating new market entry.

Finally, divestitures must be diligently orchestrated, by evaluating options and value of business to be divested.
