The Reason for the Growth of the Company
SKP’s Strategic Initiatives practice supports companies undertaking major growth or expansion projects. While organizations are typically well-geared to manage the day-to-day aspects of business efficiently, major new strategic initiatives tend to be complex projects with multiple work streams involved. Its team helps clients maintain focus on Business-as-Usual functions by dexterously supporting the unique and complex task flows that accompany Greenfield integration or Post-Merger Integration. The holistic solutions cover specialized functions, including Commercial, Technical, and Manufacturing, Supply Chain, Finance, Regulatory, and Information Technology aspects.
Inorganic growth can provide a much-needed boost to a company’s capabilities. However, India can be a challenging environment for concluding deals involving mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures, making it essential for such deals to be handled with great care and expertise. Investors must evaluate the accounting, tax, regulatory, legal, management and cultural aspects of the target company. While investors would like to have complete and accurate information to make critical decisions, such information is not readily available and is often difficult to evaluate. The success of a deal may hinge on the ability to discover and analyze the missing pieces. On-the-ground knowledge greatly improves the probability of a deal’s proper execution and success.
SKP’s holistic approach to Transaction Advisory comes from a thorough understanding of ground realities. It understands that it is not merely individual activities such as target identification or due diligence that determine the success of a transaction, but it is how such activities are collectively managed as a project. The company’s team is involved at every stage of the process followed by post-transaction hand-holding until its client is ready for the final handover. SKP works as project managers with its goal being the success of your business and its continued growth.
