Mergers & Acquisitions Due Diligence

Reports indicate that 50-80% of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) fail to meet their objectives. Any number of causes can be attributed to this exceptionally high failure rate.

At Tompkins, our focus is on identifying value and helping clients realize measurable results to support their efforts for successful M&A.

We bring our expertise with global end-to-end supply chain operations to support the analysis of a target company’s supply chain infrastructure, including: facilities, processes, technology, and organizational structure and skill sets. We provide a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of its supply chain, how well the supply chain meets customer expectations, and how it compares to the competition.

The success of M&A often depends on the cost, as well as the time, required to integrate multiple supply chain operations. Our due diligence efforts can include a detailed plan with cost estimates, a roadmap, a timeline, and critical short-term action items that will facilitate a successful process.

The key goals have included:

  • Validating cost/benefit assumptions
  • Identifying hidden values
  • Providing a list of priorities to capture short-term savings and/or customer benefits
  • Developing a longer-term strategy with an action list of initiatives that will support the strategic goals

From planning through implementation, Tompkins brings our clients measurable improvements in perfect alignment with their business strategies.
