The advent of technology and digitization across all industries as well as the growing market share of Tech companies continues to raise the importance of technology for companies. This also applies to M&A deals. Indeed, even if technology seems to have merely a supportive function within companies, it has become increasingly important to identify untapped tech related hidden risks, to raise pre-investment red flags and to evaluate how technology could be leveraged to reach the full potential of an M&A deal.
This is where the BearingPoint Tech M&A Advisory team comes in. As a strategic M&A advisor we build long-term partnerships with the M&A departments of our clients to support in all matters regarding inorganic growth. This support covers both strategic and operational aspects of M&A strategy as well as helping clients to scale their internal teams. We have completed over 1’500 Tech/IT due diligences over the last 10 years (in alliance with our partner West Monroe), which underlines our expertise and our ambition to contribute to the success of your transactions. We offer M&A Tech due diligence services for both sell side and buy side mandates, but also offer complementary services such as FOSS software code analysis (license compliance), software security and quality analysis, but also IT carve-outs and IT integrations scenario analysis.
Finally, our Tech M&A approach has also been used by our clients to perform a Technology “Quick Scan”. Within a few weeks’ runtime we can identify risks, organizational issues and untapped value potentials for corporate technology departments.
