Every acquisition must be looked at on a very individual basis. Our initial step is to gather as much information as possible before spending any time on site. This learning and pre-work will include gathering financial documents, strategy documents, and any industry information possible to build a basic understanding of the company. This provides a good basis and allows us to be much more efficient when on-site with the leadership team.
This is where we uncover the important information needed to properly evaluate from an operational perspective. We will spend time in each needed area of the company to find what is holding the company back from achieving success in terms of performance, cost, lead time, quality, and customer service. Each are will have a tie back to the financial performance of the company.
With each due diligence package, we provide a plan to help you achieve the results that we have mapped out. Every investment doesn’t have a clear plan of leadership and execution, so we provide you with an option of using us if you desire. There will be a clear ROI based on the predicted time necessary to achieve the overall results for the organization. This is provided as another data point for your investment decision.
