Delivering M&A due diligence and planning for a major NHS provider

The Challenge for the Client

This commercial services organisation wanted to pursue an opportunity to acquire similar bodies from the public sector as the market was going through a significant period of change.  Without the necessary available in-house resources to undertake the due diligence, they needed competent and experienced external help.

Rapid Engagement

Acert was recommended; our proposed team comprised three consultants each delivering key expertise: contract and commercial, M&A with sector expertise, and project management.  The client invited us to rapidly engage and project manage the process against a very aggressive timeline.

Project Success

Every aspect of the process was quickly mapped out, with relevant Q&A and data-gathering activated quickly.  All of the required information was pursued, discovered and presented to stakeholders with strong programme leadership ensuring that our client remained in full control of the negotiations.
