Speed has never been more important in the world of private equity
Now more than ever, with fewer deals and more operational uncertainty, private equity firms must act quickly to take advantage of opportunities and optimise the return on every investment.
Pre- and post-deal support is key to optimising private equity value creation
As the experts in middle market private equity, TBM offers more than two decades of private equity expertise and a team of 150 seasoned operations consultants including senior management consultants with an average of 25+ years of experience in operations management, C-suite, or continuous improvement leadership roles. We work closely with dozens of private equity firms and hundreds of mid-sized portfolio companies around the world to accelerate private equity value creation.
Since 2017, we have helped portfolio companies identify and capture more than $350M in EBITDA benefits using our proven approach for uncovering the full potential of a deal and quickly capturing value.
Pre-Deal Operational Due Diligence
Our consultants conduct rapid pre-deal operational due diligence to assess a target company’s operational capabilities across six critical dimensions—leadership, asset condition, lean maturity, management system, quality, and sales and operations planning. Our seasoned consultants and analysts can assess the operational risk, size up the full potential, surface any red flags, and validate your investment premise. Each due diligence examination is tailored to your timeline and scope as well as data availability to deliver your desired level of intensity and help you confidently pull the trigger on a deal.
Post-Deal Value Creation
We dive deeply and work rapidly during the post-deal phases of value creation to help you realise the deal’s potential in the shortest timeframe.
During an in-depth diagnostic assessment, we work on site to fully quantify improvement opportunities and establish a detailed value creation roadmap for unlocking them. You get a detailed go-forward plan for expediting the specific performance improvements that will increase operating profits, free up working capital, and drive revenue growth.
TBM leads the implementation of your value creation plan, working hands-on at the point of impact. Our work can include management system implementation for effective execution, embedding strategic resources to drive efforts, instilling operational excellence processes, developing leaders, and leveraging technologies. Progress is made daily and reported weekly.
As the holding period winds down and the exit date nears, TBM consultants push the pedal down to achieve specific sell-side operational targets, maximise EBITDA enhancements, sustain improvements, and remove any operational roadblocks to the sale.
Unlock, amplify, and accelerate improvements in EBITDA.
TBM helps move the needle on operational performance right away with the goal of rapidly, dramatically, and sustainably improving the value of portfolio companies. By identifying and then quickly capitalising on significant opportunities to improve business performance, you can realise your targeted EBITDA improvements, typically 20 to 30%, while driving top line growth for the best possible return.
When assessing a new portfolio company, the greatest opportunities for value creation can also have high risk potential. Identify your critical operational due diligence examination areas now.
