The NorthBridge Group - Economic and Strategic Consulting

Mergers and Acquisitions

Successfully creating shareholder value through consolidation requires a deep understanding of both the client and the prevailing industry and regulatory landscape. We assist clients both on the buy and sell sides, aiding them through the complex process of candidate identification and screening, corporate and regulatory strategy development, valuation, assessment of combined company risks, regulatory approval, deal execution, and final strategy implementation.

As part of this process, we often develop rigorous long-term fundamental valuations to quantify tangible sources of value and risk, in some cases as an independent assessment for our client. Our analysis often involves an examination of the potential impacts on the client’s portfolio risks and the opportunities to hedge such exposures. Combining this analysis with our industry and regulatory experience, we are often able to develop mechanisms to better ensure shareholder value from the merger.
