Post-merger integration


Post-merger integration involves supporting companies and groups of companies in deriving the maximum benefits in terms of operations and finance from consolidating business entities. Besides, it gives owners appropriate control over the extended or newly-created group of companies. Both elements are aimed at effectively securing the owners’ interests.

Grant Thornton advisers support clients in making informed and appropriate decisions aimed at maximising the benefits of company consolidation. Thanks to our experience you can make the most of the deal, and our tools and methods proven in other post-merger integration projects enable us to proceed effectively and efficiently.

The service covers the following stages:

  • Identifying areas offering potential synergies
  • Choosing the post-merger integration methodology (remodelling, unification, centralisation, outsourcing of chosen processes)
  • Defining the scopes of competence and independent decision-making powers of subsidiary management boards
  • Design and implementation of planning principles and tools
  • Development of principles for reporting performance by subsidiaries to the holding company
  • Design and implementation of the corporate internal audit function providing ongoing monitoring over processes realised by both companies and the related risks

As a result of involving Grant Thornton consultants you achieve a corporate organisation structure adapted to the new business situation, while processes throughout the enterprise are optimised. We also design and implement tools of financial and operational supervision over the group of companies.
