M&A and Alliances

Acquisitions and formation of alliances is not only for the large global companies. As OEM’s and major Tier I suppliers look to consolidate their supplier base globally, there are a world of opportunities for small to medium size businesses. AAP team members have led acquisition activities of companies located in various countries with revenue greater than $1 billion and as small as a few million dollars revenue. We have also led divestitures of corporate divisions of similar size. AAP team members have successfully led evaluations, negotiated, and managed automotive and component Joint Ventures and alliances in Brazil, Canada, China (6), Egypt, France, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, USA, and Zaire.

A Harvard Business Review study indicated that four out of five acquisitions are not successful. Acquisitions and Joint Venture projects led and managed by the personnel of AAP have a success rate of over 90%. AAP experience shows that successful involvement in acquisitions and alliances requires a disciplined approach by all aspects of the business enterprise and exacting program management. The AAP team has a very strong background in bringing it all together. Members of the AAP team authored corporate manuals detailing the activities of acquisition and divestiture.

AAP believe that it all starts with a strategy to implement an integrated business plan, and an integrated plan to implement the strategy. AAP utilizes our Integrated Strategic Business Planning Process (patent pending) to help our clients organization provide the focus and resource deployment to ensure success. Whether we are leading Due Diligence activities or negotiating a technical or marketing alliance, AAP Advisors utilize diligent program management techniques to ensure that all bases are covered. Depending on the internal strength and resource availability of our clients, AAP has the personnel with first hand experience to lead and perform each of the functional evaluations. Should additional funding be required, AAP through ADC has the contacts in the investment community to pursue the capital necessary.

AAP support does not stop after the closing of the “Deal”. Whether you need ongoing assistance integrating the new acquisition/alliance or a new entity requires training for new members of the entities Board Of Directors, AAP has the experience to “get it done”.

After all, when all is said and done, what is done is what counts.
