We discover value for Private Equity firms through a focused technology due diligence

Private Equity

When PE firms conduct a due diligence exercise, they are often forced to make price-related decisions with limited information in short timeframes.

Through our short and focused technology due diligence assessments we are able to determine the estimated impact state-of-the-art technologies can delivery to target acquisition companies.

Knowing how much value can be unlocked by implementing technologies like Robotic Process Automation, Intelligent Automation and others, provides PE firms with a significant advantage when pricing deals.

We support mergers and acquisitions (M&A) through the full integration phase.

We know that the true integration work begins once a deal is closed. It’s at this point that the value identified during the due diligence phase must be extracted.

The Burnie Group has supported many organizations through their post-merger integrations. Our team can design the integration / post-acquisition plans, define interim and target states and build an execution plan for the first 30, 60, 90, and post 90 days.

The Burnie Group can also support integrations / post-acquisitions in an extended PMI Project Management Office (PMO) role where we not only facilitate the integration but drive decision-making on key integration questions.

Private Equity firms face the challenge of delivering identified value in their acquired portfolio companies. One of the factors exacerbating this challenge is that during the due diligence phase decisions are made based on limited information and within a limited time frame.

We help PE firms deploy various technologies within their portfolio companies to extract value, resulting in efficient operations and higher revenues.

Examples of technologies and innovations where we are highly experienced include Robotic Process Automation (RPA), electronic Workforce Management (WFM), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and others.

We also leverage innovative solutions to transform the business models of portfolio companies if they are endangered in existing markets.

Through years of consulting private equity firms we have the capabilities to transform and drive value in portfolio companies across various industries including financial services, insurance, healthcare, telecommunications, supply chain management, and many more.
