M&A Diligence and Integration
Even Fortune 1000 companies with dedicated in-house acquisition teams are challenged with the integration process and the ability to achieve their investment forecast of accretive results. Since its inception, CoMetrics has assisted both buy side/sell side Companies and Private Equity sponsors in a myriad of transactions by performing the diligence negotiation consultations and post-closing integrations.

CoMetrics has achieved meaningful results for a significant number of companies by performing our Business Diagnostic. The diagnostic is a very efficient process to understand in great depth a client’s business and provide the stakeholders’ with our observations regarding personnel, cost cutting opportunities, enhanced operating efficiencies and improved management reporting and controls to drive performance. The undertaking generally results in a perspective of the business that is very different from ownership and senior management, who often are consumed with day to day transactions, and find it difficult to step back and objectively analyze their own company.
What separates CoMetrics apart from others is our proprietary DataMetrics software application which exports data directly from ERP systems and other sources providing sophisticated analytics. This application gives us the unique ability to analyze key performance indicators quickly and efficiently while providing management the ability to understand their business as never before through powerful customizable reports and interactive dashboards.
Logistics expense represents the second or third largest component of an importer’s expense structure. Despite the magnitude of this expenditure, many companies do not understand the most effective methods to bring costs down. Logistics processes and pricing are purposely complex by third party providers. We partner with our clients to drive cost savings and optimize inbound and outbound logistics management by bringing a systemic analytic approach and providing solutions to this critical very significant P&L cost.
Invariably, the most successful outcomes we have achieved for our clients began with a collaborative approach to identifying the areas of the supply chain that present the greatest opportunity for savings, efficiency, and operational improvement. By analyzing costs, provider mix, process flow, compliance and reporting, we can quickly quantify the savings potential.
