Partnership empowers M&A teams to de-risk deals, accelerate synergy capture, and achieve target value by combining M&A methodology from Slalom with M&A lifecycle management software from DealRoom
CHICAGO- Jan. 9, 2024 — DealRoom, the leading M&A lifecycle management platform has announced a new partnership with Slalom, the global business and technology consulting company, that will focus on disrupting and modernizing the dated, inefficient, and siloed M&A processes that make it challenging to unlock the full potential of M&A deal synergies and value realization.
This partnership brings together two modern M&A solution providers, combining their strengths to deliver end-to-end M&A methodology, education, and technology empowering organizations to maximize deal value and growth.
A recent study from Slalom found that 44% of companies lose track of revenue synergy targets during the integration. This is not because the deal thesis is incorrect. It’s because siloed M&A business processes, legacy methodologies, and disconnected technologies result in acquirers not being able to effectively align deal theses and execution with structured value realization after the deal closes.
The strategic partnership between DealRoom and Slalom brings together two M&A solution providers committed to modernize antiquated M&A approaches in order to realize full value from every M&A deal.
Slalom’s deep experience working with the top companies in the world informs their human-centered methodologies which prioritize value realization across the deal cycle.
DealRoom’s M&A lifecycle management platform has made it fast, easy, and cost-effective for M&A teams to optimize, accelerate, and streamline sourcing, closing, and integrating deals.
Together, DealRoom and Slalom can identify and remedy the risk of value leakage due to disconnected deal-making and integration, helping customers beat the typical M&A odds of success to achieve full value realization.
“Desired deal synergies are not realized because integrations are structured by functional silos with an execution focus on completing rigid M&A checklists and playbooks," said Chris von Bogdandy, Global Lead of M&A Solutions at Slalom.
“We share a common mission with DealRoom, focused on centering the execution of a deal-on-deal value and target operating models. Together in partnership, we will present an alternative to M&A teams that prioritizes synergy value realization via the best in methodology and technology.”
The announcement of this new strategic partnership sets the foundation for continued collaboration between DealRoom and Slalom across the spectrum of the M&A lifecycle, including joint product development, education, and more - all with the singular goal of helping Corporate Development teams optimize value realization from their M&A transactions.
"In uniting with Slalom, DealRoom pioneers a new era in M&A. Our strategic partnership merges Slalom's advanced methodologies with DealRoom's lifecycle management software, empowering M&A teams to de-risk deals, accelerate synergy capture, and achieve target value,” said Kison Patel, DealRoom CEO.
