What decisions over the duration of an investment will capture the highest ROI?

Our clients have found that most investment gains are earned on-the-buy and within the first year.

This necessitates insightful and reliable pre-acquisition support followed by expert-led and highly efficient post-merger integration and focused performance improvement initiatives.

Our professionals obsess over analyzing opportunities and implementing changes to Supply Chains and Operations to enable Private Equity clients to make the right decisions at the right times to achieve their investment objectives.

Where private equity is today

Private equity faces increasing regulation, a new environment of investment opportunities, increasing competition, pressure to lower costs, and a volatile geopolitical and economic landscape.

Especially under those conditions, due diligence is essential from the moment an investment is considered, whether an acquisition or carve out. During every stage from first consideration through final integration, it is important to:
  • Test the validity of decisions against the end-to-end supply chain.
  • Identify and validate all risks to the supply chain, including geographical, political, ESG, and financial.
  • Identify opportunities for synergy and win-win negotiations.
Data analytics and supply chain simulation
SGS Maine Pointe uses focused assessments, advanced data analytics, and supply chain simulation to define the current situation of acquisitions, integrations, and carve outs; evaluate the best options for increasing EBITDA, profits, and growth; and focus on optimization of procurement, operations, and logistics. SGS Maine Pointe looks at every link in the plan-buy-make-move-move supply chain to:
dataAnalytics
  • Establish uniform controls and metrics.
  • Ensure access to meaningful data.
  • Facilitate design for excellence (DfX) and operations excellence.
  • Standardize and optimize processes, products, and inventory.
  • Increase collaboration, efficiency, and throughput.
  • Reduce complexity and redundancy in the supply chain.
  • Understand and capitalize on the power of technology.
  • Control costs and minimize the risks posed by inflation and recession.
  • Evaluate and incorporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives.
  • Expedite win-win negotiations.
Any successful transformation of a company begins by aligning an organization’s goals from the C-suite to the manufacturing floor, collecting and analyzing reliable data from the entire supply chain, and converting data into action.

Integrated supply chain strategies increase a company’s competitiveness, deliver on shareholder expectations, and open the door to sustainable EBITDA, profits, and growth. They reduce the complexity that is rooted in poor integration of processes, people, and product. When standards, suppliers, products, and initiatives proliferate randomly, investments struggle to deliver on potential. Multiple expansions are not a guarantee of growth.

By implementing end-to-end supply chain optimization throughout the investment cycle, SGS Maine transforms organizations to maximize financial returns.
