Achieving M&A, divestment or alliance 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, divestment, separation and alliances. Your problem is unique and our way of approaching and solving this with you is through our blend of Leading Processes, Deep Experience and support of the right Leadership Behaviours, all of which are key to delivering long-term deal success.
BTD played a significant part in the acquisition process, and analysis from their cultural snapshot survey was useful to the entire management team. I would recommend that anyone considering an international acquisition should think about taking similar steps and would not hesitate to recommend BTD to other companies.
The assistance BTD provided was pivotal in targeting a number of high profile, high-value companies. The work performed was invaluable in providing a snapshot of the potential acquisitions scene within the UK marketplace.
We chose BTD in favour of other potential partners due to their customised, customer-focussed and flexible approach which did not come at any expense in depth-of-knowledge and practical hands-on experience in both the technical and cultural/softer aspects of M&A.
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.
