OW Capability: Corporate Finance & Restructuring

Post-Merger Integration

Oliver Wyman has developed a holistic approach to post-merger integration to ensure that our clients capture the full value of transactions.

Our approach includes effective alignment and culture change, operations management and performance improvements, customer retention, supplier/vendor integration, and intelligent rationalization – backed by detailed, step-by-step implementation support.

Recent Project Examples:

  • Planned the post-merger integration of a newly purchased portfolio company with another company previously purchased by a PE firm
  • "Leaned out" an entire A&D manufacturing process, conducted a performance improvement program, and reorganized supply chain processes
  • Implemented a value-sourcing program for a large electronics firm
  • Created a downstream service growth program for a plastics machinery company
  • Ran the program management office, restructured US operations, and developed synergy targets for a US-based auto supplier of machinery acquired by a European player
  • Organized and executed the post-transaction integration planning effort and supported the functional integration teams of a combination of equally-sized utilities
