TRANSACTION MANAGEMENT

Strategy › Diligence › Integration › Synergies

We provide management solutions for carve-outs, mergers and acquisitions and new ventures.

Greenwood Management Advisors was founded in 2014 with a mission to bring both deep business experience and next generation analytic technologies to transaction advisory. As an alternative to large consulting firms – we pride ourselves in our agility, and ability to bring innovative solutions to our clients.

As investment returns have become more dependent on strategic and operational initiatives, clients have increasingly needed better analytic technologies to enact meaningful change.

SOLUTIONS

OUR SOLE FOCUS IS ON CREATING AND CAPTURING VALUE FROM GROWTH STRATEGIES.


—CLOSE FASTER

Highly targeted diligence, data driven assumptions, and deep transaction valuation expertise combine to help our clients close the right deals, at the right price, faster.

—GET A COMPLETE PICTURE

Analytic and operating expertise help our clients develop a more complete picture of the transaction, and better estimate the impact of  operational improvements.

—QUICKLY GAIN VISIBILITY

Rapid data integration allows Senior Management to quickly get a handle on actual performance vs. expectations – mitigating the risk of a post-close performance dip.

—ACCELERATE PERFORMANCE

Clear 100-day plans with a highly targeted focus on the few optimization opportunities which really matter, help our clients accelerate post-close operational improvements.


VALUE CREATION

FOCUS ON THE RIGHT THINGS – THOSE WHICH REALLY MATTER.


Value Creation Requires Agile Execution

Recent studies suggest that two thirds to three fourths of companies fail to get the intended results from strategies. While evidence indicates strategy and execution should not be thought of separately – the gap between well laid plans, and achieving results continues to widen. The gap is particularly prominent in transactions.

Often times synergy estimates, and integration plans are developed with flawed assumptions, integration is managed by a one-size-fits-all plan, and value creation is relegated to the sidelines. The challenge of achieving the intended goals is further compounded by an uncertain environment and incomplete information.

Experience and awareness are key in maintaining agility – and agility is key to achieving results. Anticipating what is coming next, based on past experience, allows us to help your team side-step significant risks and stay focused on getting the most important things right.

Greenwood Management Advisors serves as the conduit to successfully price and execute complex transactions.

FULLY UNDERSTAND OPPORTUNITIES

Proprietary technology, deep operating expertise, and an industry expert network, help identify opportunities and costs others often overlook.

ACCELERATE VALUE CAPTURE

Proprietary tools - developed through numerous transactions - allow your team to quickly mobilize, gain momentum and turn focus from managing checklists to creating and capturing value.

ANTICIPATE AND MITIGATE RISK

Significant transaction experience - our consultants have participated in hundreds of transactions - allows us to anticipate and mitigate risks: capital and operating expenditures, talent retention, customer turnover, and organization disruption.

EXECUTE WITH AGILITY

Deep reporting and technology expertise allows us to quickly provide visibility into financial performance and key operating metrics. Having the right information at the right time is key to agile execution.

We’ve all heard and said the expression, “The devil is in the details.” This article addresses two types of complexity associated with stock purchase agreements. First, we’ll cover some risks in a contract where the purchase price is contingent upon future business performance. Second, we’ll address some issues regarding related party transactions where the stock purchase is for less than a controlling interest, and the stock purchaser is subject to the control of the majority holders.
