Post-Merger Integration achieved results beyond the targeted financial objectives for a Private Equity fund

EFESO Management Consultants was requested by a Private Equity fund to support the Post-Merger Integration of two of its portfolio companies in the pharmaceutical sector, with the objective of ensuring integration success, and delivering expected synergies within six months.

Our approach

The EFESO engagement team carried out the integration process in five countries by:

  • Designing a lean Target Operating Model, focused on key activities to reach strategic objectives, and considering the current strengths of both merged companies
  • Quickly ramping-up processes, systems and capabilities in Manufacturing and the Supply Chain
  • Aligning and improving key business processes
  • Rolling-out a change management plan through a participative approach to align the team around the merger
  • Setting-up a Project Management Office (PMO) in order to mitigate risk, size the effort and keep everyone focused on the major integration activities of the action plan and the defined momentum.


The Post-Merger Integration achieved results beyond the targeted financial objectives, delivering:

  • Additional synergies of 15% on operational costs
  • 13% CAGR on revenue (organic growth) for the 3-year plan.
