Grow and Win Business

Building a business to match your ambition

Growth comes in many forms.  You may want to launch into new markets, explore new channels, or increase your market share by winning more business from competitors.  

We can help you develop, evaluate and select the right growth strategy for your business.  Our services include advising on mergers and acquisitions; developing your online trading approach; and producing winning RFP responses.

Growing  by acquiring or merging with competitors can be the fastest way to scale up your business.  However, if not managed correctly, it can be extremely disruptive and destroy shareholder value, even risking the future of the business.  Large companies acknowledge this, and will establish a comprehensive M&A playbook which describes all the activities needed to successfully execute acquisitions. 

Smaller companies may not have the experience or capacity to perform all these activities in-house.  We can bolster your team and provide expertise in the end-to-end M&A process:

  • Growth Strategy - Assess if growth by M&A is the best approach for your business, and if so - how?
  • Transaction Assessment - Identifying and evaluating potential targets against set criteria.
  • Business Case - Establishing the value drivers behind the deal, and whether a positive outcome is likely.
  • Due Diligence - Leading operational due diligence to better understand the business, identify risks and further develop the business case.
  • Transaction Execution - Supporting negotiations and agreeing on a final price.
  • Integration Planning - Establishing an integration plan to successfully achieve the deal value drivers.
  • Integration Programme Management - Managing deal risks, tracking and executing against deal value drivers, and realising the business value of the deal. 
 Merger and Acquisition End to End Process

For a traditional 'bricks and mortar' business, the move to online trading brings a significant growth opportunity.  However, while it is easy to establish an online presence, making this a successful sales channel presents many challenges.

We can help you decide the correct online trading approach for you, and how to make it a success.  This can include commerce platforms, marketing options such as pay-per-click advertising, fulfilment challenges and customer support.
