Too often, value is lost and relationships are strained because integration issues were not given the attention they deserve before the closing. Many sellers see integration requirements as unimportant tasks that can be dealt with as they arise. In other cases, integration is overlooked because of the pressures of getting the deal done. Don’t fall into this trap!
Carefully consider integration from the very beginning of due diligence. Establish a plan and be ready to activate it the day after the deal is signed. At BCS, we have been through many integrations and we know how to help you avoid the post-transition value killing mistakes that we’ve seen over the years.
