M&A360: Value creation solutions for private equity

Creating transformative value through each stage of the investment life cycle

Today’s business landscape is increasingly sophisticated and unpredictable; now more than ever, creating augmented value through merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions is paramount. Private equity firms need data-driven insights and outcome-focused solutions that minimize risk and maximize return on invested capital throughout the transaction life cycle.

RSM’s M&A360TM framework is execution-driven and centered on delivering measurable enterprise value by applying proven methodologies, industry knowledge and complete deal capabilities. M&A360 takes into consideration each unique transaction structure—carve-outs, add-ons and platform acquisitions—and leverages technology, innovative approaches, and data-driven insights to assist clients in achieving their priorities.

Acquisition strategy and diligence 

Understanding your transaction needs and investment thesis gives us the ability to support you with acquisition strategy, holistic diligence—financial, tax operations, IT and cyber—as well as synergy planning and cost management to reduce your risk exposure and close the deal with speed and confidence.

Integration, separation and transaction support

When the transaction finally closes, many people believe that the hard work is done. But in reality, it is just the beginning, and a poorly planned or executed integration will significantly diminish the value that the deal intended to deliver.

Identifying and minimizing risks, accelerating transition timelines and minimizing cost variability helps to ensure the transaction priorities and investment thesis are achieved—regardless of transaction structure.

Portfolio optimization

Portfolio transformation helps support your goals of revenue acceleration, cost containment and risk mitigation. We work with you to make your key business functions and departments — addressing people, process, technology and data — efficient, agile and positioned to deliver value and a rapid return on your investment.

Divestiture strategy and support

Whether selling a business or taking it public, a successful exit requires discipline and planning. With guidance and hands-on support, our team has the experience to help you to maximize marketability, mitigate risks, increase speed to closing and drive value on exit.
