One of the United States’ largest and most cherished media companies engaged Quire to be part of a diverse team supporting the execution of a $3.0bn M&A deal. The goal was to transform the client through the acquisition of technology and digital capabilities.
The client’s strengths in producing premium content had to be meshed with the target’s technology prowess and aggressive culture. Building a synergistic plan that can produce a sum greater than the parts is always challenging in this context.

  • Diligence support for the management team and Board of Directors.
  • Vetting of the combined strategic plan with a focus on growth acceleration.
  • Complex modeling and valuation analysis of the combined asset and synergies.

We also focused on shaping the combined company’s 5-year plan, as well as the market messaging related to the acquisition.
