Mergers and Acquisitions

We Begin With an End-to-End Approach

Mercer’s approach to M&A starts before the opening of negotiations and continues after the deal’s closed. Mercer’s M&A consultants are experts in advising both corporate and private buyers and sellers, whether they’re private equity or corporate investors. We provide both strategic and technical HR due diligence, rigorous project management, and expert post-merger integration.

Due Diligence

Our comprehensive due diligence analysis helps assess:

  • Cash flows, P&L costs, and liabilities across a spectrum of human capital areas.
  • The target company’s talent strategy.
  • Compensation and equity commitments.
  • Benefits costs and risks.
  • Local employment regulations.

Our in-depth experience allows us to help mitigate risks for buyers facing short timeframes and a dearth of information. We also help perform reverse due diligence, helping sellers identify red flags and other impediments to completing a successful transaction.

M&A Project Management

Success is in the details. Our exacting approach to project management combines comprehensive resources with global consulting and transaction specialists. Mercer’s process helps define clear strategic and operational priorities. We help clients clarify governance and develop new protocols; we can manage every aspect of the process from kick-off to post-merger integration — all while meeting timelines, budgets, and expectations.

Post-merger Integration

The deal may be done, but the work of making a merger or an acquisition successful is far from over. Mercer’s M&A consultants can help the new organization merge corporate cultures, clarify governance, comply with legal and regulatory requirements, and develop an effective employee communications strategy. Our goal is to help maximize the synergies between organizations so that the new entity can realize its full value.
