Business review, strategic rationale and target identification

Only 1 in 9 CEOs successfully deliver the original business strategy.

Calash’s approach supports clients to deliver first time by developing robust, insightful and fact based acquisition strategies targeting the most attractive subsectors, geographies and technologies based on agreed investment criteria.

We then give a more comprehensive overview of these, outlining their financial and market performance. We assess the target’s current performance, and, based on macro and micro market trends, analyse its potential. 

We will identify target options through a deep dive review which are specific to client needs and can be comprehensive and wide ranging or specific to pre-identified targets. These can include the following:

  • Macro market overview / detailed sub sector assesment
  • Key market drivers and anticipated market growth or trends
  • How macro factors and major event risks impact on potential target markets
  • Value opportunity and synergy assessment
  • Current target financial and market performance
  • Opportunity analysis and priority ranking
