Mergers & Acquisitions
Know the Risks, Know the Rewards (We Can Help)
Miles to go before the deal is done? That’s not a bad thing. We’ll walk them with you. M3’s mergers and acquisitions (M&A) services involve a thorough risk analysis process that provides the information you need to make the best decisions you can.
M3 can help guide you through the complexities of M&A – whatever side of the process you’re on. Although improved financial performance may be at the heart of most M&A endeavors, each situation presents a unique set of risks. And that means a thorough due diligence process is necessary to ensure all unrecognized risk exposures are accounted for and their impact is considered. We offer the flexibility of customizing the due diligence to a specific segment or risk, or we can do a full risk analysis and audit report.
Put Method to Your M&A Process
This is no time for surprises. M3 works closely with you as we go through a strategic process to identify and quantify the risks. And with each one comes this key question: how will you effectively manage it? We help evaluate the impact of the merger or acquisition on your workers’ compensation experience mod. We also identify potential legacy issues and liabilities. No matter the industry, it’s important to thoroughly review both the financial and labor aspects of the business, including financial audits, tax returns, corporate records, benefit plans, risk management programs, culture assessments, and more.
M3 can facilitate the M&A process, which really comes down to each party assessing the viability and perceived “fit” of the other. If discussions continue to be fruitful and due diligence continues, the process will ultimately become more structured – discussions become negotiations, negotiations progress toward agreements, and ultimately a newly consolidated organization is born.
Our business planning and review process for mergers & acquisitions can help you be certain your organization is proactively addressing exposures before the deal is signed.
