We provide an integrated perspective on value creation and feasibility during all stages of M&A, from ideation to integration, based on our involvement with some of the largest aerospace and defense (A&D) deals over the past five years. We help clients build their internal capabilities so that by the time integration is complete, they will have formed sustainable “M&A muscle” that will serve them well in future deals. Our experts have a deep understanding of A&D issues that can only come from experience within the sector. For each merger or acquisition, we have a clear viewpoint about the strategies that will maximize value.
Through our work within A&D, we have developed a strong understanding of the sector’s culture and nuances, including the complex customer requirements that overlay any deal, and the financial requirements to create value in a defense context. We help clients:
- create revenue synergies and identify new product opportunities, including service models driven by digital innovation
- determine supply-chain synergies—an important benefit in an environment where resilience and security are paramount concerns
- develop new operating models designed for speed and agility that also reduce costs
Our insights provide clients with solid strategies for negotiating deals. To ensure long-term benefits, we create change programs designed to sustain improvement.
