According to Deloitte, “Corporations and private equity firms pin the most blame on external factors but recognize the need for more effective due diligence and integration to make sure revenue projections materialize.”

Challenge:

Dexter was brought in by M&A Company to assist with a supplier to the Pest Control market.

  • Pre-due Diligence phase
  • Provided Outlook on the market
  • Identified and outlined some bad practices and risks

Opportunity:

Dexter was brought in by M&A Company to assist with a supplier to the Pest Control market.

  • Identified risks in technology, product and service offering
  • Identified some regulatory challenges
  • Identified an ROI would not materialize until year 10

Solution:

The company was heavily reliant on its profitability, on its production facility which produced its own branded product, as well as, producing products for some other companies.  During the process, it was identified that to continue the production of certain active ingredients HUGE investments would be required due to changing regulation in the next two years. In addition, some products would not be able to continue production due to new regulatory requirements.   This investigative work flushed out that the seller basically knew the regulatory requirements were coming, did not have the money or appetite for the changes and was trying to go for a quick sale.
