Post-Merger Integration Strategy

The Situation

Stack'd was engaged by a US-based private equity group, to create an integration strategy for an acquisition into one of its platforms. The two companies, operating from Korea to Curacao, were international market leaders in underwater ship husbandry, and former joint-venture partners that previously severed their relationship. Additionally, the platform company’s previous acquisitions were never fully integrated, resulting in multiple ‘ways of operating’.

Our Approach

To support the integration of the new acquisition, and to address historical integration challenges in the platform company, the Stack’d team:
  1. Supported senior leaders to understand how each company operated historically, and what made each company successful;
  2. Supported functional leaders to establish and execute plans to integrate business functions to a single way of operating;
  3. Targeted cost and revenue synergies by providing visibility and holding leaders accountable for delivery;
  4. Assessed the drastically different cultures at each company and identified behavioral changes required for a desired culture; and,
  5. Advised, guided and mentored senior leaders through their first formal integration.

Value Received

“Stack’d provided the structure and guidance through our integration which drove us to a successful integration of 12 individual offices from 4 separate companies into one corporation in 6 months! Their guidance through the entire process was invaluable and we would use their process and services in the future” - EVP and Integration Leader
