Advise Board of Directors on M&A Strategy

How We Helped

valueideas helped the BOD Executive Committee develop criteria for selection of the suitors including cultural fit, markets, product line, management team etc. We helped the BOD narrow down options and initiate discussions, reducing the choices down to two. Designated by the Board, we visited the suitors and along with the CEO and reported back to the Executive Committee with recommendations.  We educated and guided the Management Team on the process and prepared for the due diligence.  After the negotiations fell through with the leading candidate, we helped to reignite the stalled discussions with the second candidate which led to the finalization of the deal and closure.
