Mergers and Acquisitions Due Diligence
Merger and acquisition (M&A) can be an important and critical component for a company’s growth. A successful acquisition helps a company make leaps in terms of market presence, filling in gaps for a product or service portfolio, and improving profitability and performance metrics. At Executive Solutions South, LLC, our mergers and acquisitions due diligence services evaluate the people in the company & it’s HR department to ensure that they are entered with a full understanding of the opportunities and risks . This ensures they move forward quickly, reducing disruption to operations, and implementing changes that allow the expected value to be realized.
Boards should seek that management conducts a robust due diligence process designed to out potential risks and valuation considerations, assess their magnitude and the probability of the risks, consider whether mitigation is possible, and respond accordingly. Due diligence done well can provide significant insights into the target company and allows for a more informed assessment of the potential risks and anticipated benefits of the transaction. At Executive Solutions South, LLC, we’ve developed a comprehensive road map to guide clients through the M&A process with real-world, practical, and tactical experience.
Due diligence is a broad concept that can cover a significant number of areas. Transactions are fast-paced and deals are closed with less information than is ideal which makes the risks high and required to weigh more carefully. At Executive Solutions South, LLC, we set up frameworks that help organizations recognize risks and examine potential financial, fiscal, legal, operational, and administrative pitfalls. Our HR expertise allows us to identify human capital risks, including management team and key employee compensation, pension risks, high employee turnover, difficult labor relations, and local regulations.
Specifically we review the potential acquisition’s practices and policies in the areas of:
- Management contracts
- Culture Analysis
- Management Team Analysis
- Labor relations
- Talent management
- Employee relations
- Employee census
- Retirement SERPS
- Pending legal issues
- I9 records
- Safety issues
- Risk assessment
Any M&A transaction, no matter the size or structure, can have a significant impact on the acquiring company. Developing and implementing a robust due diligence process can lead to a much better assessment of the risks and potential benefits of a transaction, enable the renegotiation of pricing and other key terms, and smooth the way towards a more effective integration. At Executive Solutions South, LLC, we utilize a spreadsheet format to provide extensive details, and provide a detailed report with recommendations on completion of the Human Resources Analysis.
We can help you improve your bottom line by putting the right people in the right seats at the right time.
