Achieving merger, acquisition or divestment goals remains challenging despite decades of experience and available ‘best practice’. Outright failure is rare, but underperformance is endemic and often ignored.
BTD is a specialist consultancy that helps business get more from their deals, more quickly. We offer services in acquisitions, integration, sales disposals and separation. Your problem is unique and our way of approaching and solving this with you is through our blend of Leading Process, Experience and managing Leadership Behaviours.
BTD brought a specific set of skills and experience to support our team when planning a large and complex merger. In particular their experience in creating effective change management plans and understanding of the challenges when merging very different international cultures was invaluable.
The complexity of pre-deal due diligence and its relationship to successful post-merger integration requires thoughtful identification and use of advisers. BTD’s experience and professionalism has contributed to our confidence that this deal will create meaningful value for Glatfelter’s shareholders.
BTD hit the ground running and rapidly helped us develop the operating model and integration roadmap for our combined business. This increased and expedited the benefits of integration, speeding up the path to operational excellence.
There is no doubt that our latest platform deal would not have happened with the same pace and professionalism without BTD. I would use them again in an instant.
The BTD team did a great job for us on this deal; the help with Day 1 and integration planning was very valuable and we, as always, appreciate their thoughtful support and partnership
We built a strong relationship with BTD through the process, and I trusted them to let me know what was good for my business, even if it might not immediately be best for them.
BTD helped codify one of our key sources of advantage. They delivered an excellent process and product, leaving us with a guide that is the culmination of 10 years of ground-breaking M&A activity within the mining sector and a valuable toolkit that Xstrata can benefit from in the future.
Experienced, knowledgeable, open-minded, very professional and organized, but very operational and accessible, BTD were key to our success. I would be delighted to work with them again.
BTD was able to put theory into practice, relating it directly to specific business issues. They provided an excellent training course and on-going support.
Post-merger integration is a big effort, bigger than most companies realize; BTD provided a qualified program manager with a systematic approach to organizing and prioritizing integration activities that kept everything in control and very visible to management. We more than likely wouldn’t have been successful doing this on our own.
