CPG Acquisition Synergies

Facilitated acquisition through due diligence and sensitivity

Situation:
A consumer products manufacturer needed assistance in bridging the gap between its organization and a potential purchaser. Specifically, it wanted help in planning the end state of the combined organization.

Actions:

  • Conducted operational due diligence
  • Developed synergistic cost elimination plan, including 3 facility closures, new organizational design, and other post-acquisition opportunities
  • Developed projections while maintaining distance between the companies on account of past “bad blood” between the two

Results: The acquisition proved successful, and the combined organization was able to achieve the projected cost and operational synergies.
