Deal generation: We work alongside investors to develop the right investment thesis and enhance deal flow by profiling industries, screening targets and devising a plan to approach targets.
Due diligence: We help investors make better deal decisions by performing due diligence, assessing performance improvement opportunities and providing a post-acquisition agenda.
Portfolio value creation: Immediately post-acquisition, we support the drive for rapid returns by developing a strategic blueprint, leading workshops that align management with strategic priorities and directing focused initiatives. During the ownership phase, we support leveraged efforts in revenue enhancement and cost reduction and refresh the value-creation plan.
Exit planning: We help ensure that investors consummate deals with a maximum return by preparing for exits, identifying the optimal exit strategy, preparing the selling documents and pre-qualifying buyers.
Distressed turnarounds: Private equity firms and financial investors benefit from Bain’s Corporate Renewal group, which provides expertise for boards and equity sponsors of underperforming, capital constrained companies. We focus on turnarounds that preserve shareholder equity. Our experts are uniquely skilled in financial restructuring and strategic, operational and organizational transformations.
Firm strategy and operations: Working jointly with private equity firms, we help them to develop their own strategy for continued excellence. Topics include asset class and geographic diversification, sector strategy, fund-raising, organizational design and decision making, winning the war for talent and maximizing investment capabilities.
