How We Helped


valueideas developed an M&A strategy aligned with the overall business strategy to create synergies leading to optimal results. We developed the criteria and mechanism to filter, so that the client pursues only those opportunities that were fully aligned with the focus and strategy. The valuation criteria that we developed went well beyond the cost-only focus to include strategic factors that drive better synergies and value creation.  The due diligence process included factors beyond traditional areas such as operations, financial and legal. We enhanced integration capacity and capabilities to deliver faster and better value to the merged entity
