Campbell, California (PRWEB) March 31, 2015
Lighthouse Information Systems, Inc., a West Coast management consulting firm with operations in California, Oregon, Washington and clients across the US, announces the formal launch of its Merger and Acquisition (M&A) Integration Services offering, effective immediately.
Peter Adams, VP Client Services and M&A Integration Practice Leader at Lighthouse, explains, “Research has repeatedly shown that the vast majority of M&A initiatives fail to achieve their intended economic objectives. In some cases, they actually destroy value. Recognizing this sad reality, we have built an improved integration model with a robust approach to identifying and mitigating those risks, while uncovering new opportunities for synergy, during the critical business integration phase.”
Lighthouse places strong focus and priority on working to the original economic intent of the M&A transaction. Their executive perspective and detailed discovery-based approach to M&A integration drive economic results - rapidly. Peter Adams concludes, "We avoid simply force-fitting disparate systems or focusing blindly on technology harmonization. Our real edge is keeping the economic intent in mind."
Janet Bressler, CAO and former M&A Integration client of Lighthouse, said, “It was the greatest luck being introduced to Lighthouse just at the time we were in the maelstrom of a major integration effort. They brought incredible insight, skill, experience and rigor to the effort. They addressed not only the systems and processes, but the culture mix and the people skills too. And, during the whole project they kept the original business objective of the integration as the North Star of all their efforts. I would re-engage them in a heartbeat.”
In formalizing this offering Lighthouse will encompass both pre-deal due diligence and post-deal integration. In this endeavor, they will be working with C-Suite executives as well as CPA, M&A Consulting and Private Equity firms.
