In which situations is a post merger integration manager useful?

There are a lot of situations where external post merger integration support is useful. Our people can work on a strategic level and act as sparring partners for senior management of the buyer. At the same time we can also work on an operational level in post merger integration projects. For a client one of our post merger integration managers worked in house. He made a market scan of all possible European acquisition targets and quantified synergies together with the different work stream leaders. This involved making presentations and business cases for individual acquisition targets. Based on detailed financial models synergies and critical acquisition criteria where analysed. This was already a preliminary start of the post merger integration process. Other projects included the sale of separate business units abroad for a client and the post sale disintegration of certain business parts. This occurred as the owner wanted to focus its strategy on core parts of the business.
