Approximately 80 percent of all M&A transactions fail, not because novices do them, but because they are handled almost exclusively by investment bankers and lawyers who fail to consider more than the financials of the companies. That’s not enough.
Successful M&A deals assess and understand the companies’ operational strengths and shortcomings, and their organizations and cultures. They have a clear, well-articulated strategy of what “success” looks like, and a focused plan of action. And this all happens before the deal is done.

Aligned Growth Partners specializes in business transactions ranging from several millions of dollars to $500 million. Working in conjunction with financial and legal advisors to bring a complete business, perspective to each M&A engagement, we play a key role, both before and after the transaction.
When all factors are assessed and a clear plan developed and properly executed, these transactions can contribute to increased shareholder and stakeholder value.
- Pre-transaction Assessment. We conduct an in-depth analysis to assess the synergies, strengths and weakness of all operational and organizational areas of the business, and develop a comprehensive roadmap to ensure a quick and effective integration of all business elements.
- Post-transaction Integration. We make sure that the roadmap continues to be robust and the rollout is a well-managed process with clear priorities, timetables and accountabilities. At every step, we work extensively with the Board, and executive and management teams to ensure that the resulting structure, leadership, culture, and values will support the overall prescribed goals of the transaction.
Aligned Growth Partners has the proven track record to work with and within an organization to understand the value drivers of the business and develop a comprehensive plan to exploit the potential opportunity. We are committed to acting quickly and thoroughly to ensure that all possible elements are considered and the transaction successful
