Securing superior returns in tomorrow’s business
The M&A agenda is evolving together with business environment of corporates and investors. The proactive M&A teams of tomorrow will support transformative bets by adding new digital assets and technological capabilities to the mix through transactions. This requires PEs, CFOs and corporate M&A teams to move beyond synergy exploitation, integration and market consolidation to support transformative bets

Seeing through the smoke and mirrors
Getting a clear read on relevant players in new technology and digital domains is a daunting task for most M&A teams. To support transformative bets, M&A teams need to become proactive supporters of innovation through transactions. The traditional M&A radar needs a new dimension, as M&A teams will be required to systematically scout for potential targets in unknown domains to fast-track innovation.
EYBOX helps M&A teams see through the smoke and mirrors of the technology and digital domains. We compile global targets – enabled by a unique proprietary technology platform called Embryonic. We screen targets and insightfully outline the purpose-fitness. We help M&A get smart about transactions in new domains.
GROWTH TECH INVESTMENT
Adding new tech to the mix, smartly
To address the now, next, and beyond, corporates must start to add new digital assets and technological capabilities to their business mix. The traditional M&A playbook often comes up short and M&A teams are consequently faced with a new set of problems in the transaction process that they struggle to solve.
EYBOX helps M&A teams get smart about adding new tech and digital capabilities to the mix and help developing and implementing digitally enabled operating models. We define the M&A playbook fit for tech and digital transactions and leverage digital tools to build efficiency or effectiveness throughout the full transaction lifecycle. All while deploying global best-practices to realize and protect the full deal.
TECHNOLOGY TRANSACTIONS – CASE IN POINT
Changing the corporate story
EYBOX helped a global industrial products producer to plan integration and develop the going-in integration hypothesis and target operating model during the due diligence phase. We helped with refining the integration model between signing and close, and developing a first year integration strategy together with the combined management group, and supported the integration dialogue and integration process after close.
