100 Day Plan
VVA supports Private Equity firms throughout the process, ensuring that newly acquired companies exhibit immediate strong performance in Europe, US and Asia. Our international M&A experience suggests us that newly acquired companies present a significant opportunity to create value in the first ''100 days” post acquisition.
The ''100 Day Plan” ensures that the investment hypothesis is realised or exceed and in particular: significant P&L improvement through overhead cost reduction, productivity quick wins and purchasing improvements or established programmes to further reduce costs through process re-engineering and organisational development.
The “100 Day Plan” can be tailored to the clients’ needs and incorporates different activities:
- a programme architecture to ensure that the realisation of the investment thesis is organised in discrete streams of work;
- a framework for monitoring progress, based around financial, operational and cultural deliverables;
- a process that ensures that the level of planning is consistent with the complexity of the challenge in each workstream and that quick wins are identified and implemented;
- a structured process for hand over, ensuring that the longer term projects maintain momentum and focus well beyond the initial 100 days.
