M&A and IT Carve Out

IT transformations in M&A and IT carve outs

Why you need IT transformation experts

Navisco provides complementary IT Advisory Services creating meaningful shareholder value in carve-outs, mergers, and standalone operational improvement situations. We add value to IT throughout the investment lifecycle by working with best-in-class IT partners to implement the IT target operating model.

The success of any M&A or carve-out initiative depends crucially on how the IT landscape is adapted, as this is the area where key integration processes are implemented. Mergers, acquisitions and carve-outs often fail, because of misguided IT projects. Therefore, a proven process for IT integration/disintegration is necessary to maintain sustainable return opportunities.

IT challenges in M&A and carve-out initiatives

  • Short preparation time for initiative

  • High workload for involved personnel

  • Limited experience of IT team with M&A and carve-outs

  • No disruption of service operation desired

  • Exploding costs if insufficient actions are taken
