Post-Merger Integration and Cost Reduction

When an industry-leading gaming and electronic systems and products company merged with a complementary player of equal size, the company sought integration assistance and cost reduction. Functions across IT, supply chain, product teams, and more required the identification of synergies and opportunities to consolidate operations of the two organizations.

HighPoint was engaged and deployed a team of consultants led by a former McKinsey Senior Partner with post-merger integration and industry expertise.

After a targeted HighPoint team of four was leveraged to drive pre-close planning, an integration team of twelve HighPoint consultants was deeply embedded in major functional areas throughout the company, including working directly with the CFO to prepare for management meetings, lead staff integration efforts, and track synergies on a corporate-wide basis.

From pre-close to final integration, this effort spanned 18 months.
