Our Mergers & Acquisitions experts deliver diligent service and risk knowledge to ensure success for every deal.

In the mergers & acquisitions world, each transaction is unique, and the treatment of the known and unknown liabilities may ultimately determine the level of economic success for both parties to the transaction.

Identifying and valuing risk — and making recommendations for transferring the risk via an insurance vehicle, contractually or financially — is a primary value The Plexus Groupe provides for our clients, including our private equity and venture capital partners.

While The Plexus Groupe is one of the many subject matter experts included on the deal team, the risk identification and transfer role we provide is extraordinarily important. We will immerse ourselves in the target’s operations, contracts, historical insurance programs (past and current) and claim history.

We analyze the target company’s program structures with respect to risk management and commercial insurance, employee benefits and retirement plans to identify risk-related speed bumps that may derail the transaction. Further, the risk assessment includes post-close budgeting to ensure insurance-related expenses are appropriately identified.

Post transaction, we recognize the episode requires a flexible, custom approach as deployed in the pre-close due diligence process, to ensure the employees and balance sheet are protected appropriately for the risks assumed by the investment firm and new operating company. Managing the private equity and portfolio company relationship collaboratively is crucial to bringing efficient resolution to challenges that arise at the portfolio company level. We deliver upon this unique dynamic with a high degree of technical cost-benefit analysis, attention to detail, and thorough, precise communication.

Addressing both sides of the transaction with the same service commitment to communication and innovation allows The Plexus Groupe to realize our ultimate objective: ensuring that our clients realize maximum value at exit.
