Integration Methodology

Most acquisitions fail due to the poor execution of the integration plan.  While each investment situation is different, we have developed a basic integration methodology to improve the results of strong businesses and salvage those businesses suffering from financial difficulty.  This methodology has two stages:

Stage 1:  Stabilize the business (6-12 months)

  • Implement our ERP package
  • Develop incentive plans for all employees
  • Make adjustments based on information (headcount reduction, plant layout, customer pricing)
  • Develop operational infrastructure to run the business efficiently

    Stage 2:  Expansion (12-24 months) 

  • Determine new markets where we can sell our products.
  • Develop plan for entering these markets (internal or acquisition)
