Presented by

Rob Walker-Director-Coeus Consulting and Johann Diaz – Director, Strategic Value Business Consulting, Serviceware

About this talk

Brexit has dampened technology M&A activities in the UK market since 2016. The uncertainty over the UK’s final exit from the EU has depressed valuations of target companies based in UK. With up to 80 percent of all mergers, acquisitions and divestment actually destroying shareholder value instead of enhancing it, IT integration and IT synergies are now seen in many deals as equal to, or more important than a cultural match. The costs and challenges of post-merger IT integration are frequently significant and often take longer than originally anticipated as details emerge post deal. Similarly, the challenges of splitting a well-run set of IT services to support a divestment are often far more complicated than might be expected. Serviceware has teamed up with Coeus Consulting to offer this webinar looking at how M&A outcomes can be better assured, despite massive uncertainties from Covid-19 and Brexit. The key challenge is to fully understand the existing IT environment/s in enough detail to accurately capture costs and timescales for integration or separation and to identify priorities and benefits that support merger / divestment planning and communications. In this webinar we will introduce you to: • A strategic IT M&A methodology – built on years of successful client activity • An approach and software platform integrated to your General Ledger - used to identify and manage your IT Service costs quickly & transparently • Key Value-Based Accelerators – to enable visibility & transparency within weeks, not months As businesses grapple with the ongoing uncertainty around Covid-19, Brexit and the economy, many will see M&A as a way to secure their future, or as an opportunity to grow through strategic acquisitions. This webinar will offer you some clear steps to take to ensure M&A success in the years that lie ahead.
