5-3 Post Merger Integration

We amend acquired entity’s financial reporting and closing processes after the M&A deal have been done. We primally amend accounting errors and Internal Control deficiencies detected during financial due diligence of the M&A deal. We also find additional financial errors and internal control deficiencies during our post merger integration procedures. Our procedures are as follows.

  1. Understand business of the entity
  2. Understand financial reporting and closing processes of the entity
  3. Study detected financial errors and internal control deficiencies during due diligence of the M&A deal
  4. Amend the detected items on trial
  5. Ensure issues pertaining to the detected items and prepare initial amendment plan
  6. Arrange temp staff and required resources for the project
  7. Perform amendment
  8. Interim reporting and discussion ( repeat 5 to 8 processes until the amendment is completed)
  9. Finalize cleaning up financial errors and amend internal control deficiencies
Although, these post merger integration procedures often require heavy manual operation such as retrospective investigation on the entity’s books for approximate five or ten years, they are very important for post merger integration or exit strategy of the client.
