What is Mergers & Acquisitions
Lockton's Profession & Financial Risks Division (Profin) provides interoffice deal-related insurance and employee benefit due diligence to acquisition-minded clients. We exist to serve our client-base and the private equity community. We have the expertise and experience to identify and evaluate unrecognized exposures and their impact on the purchase price of any merger or acquisition. We also quantify costs associated with these exposures for the purpose of factoring them into the final structure of the transaction.
We provide pre-closing value by evaluating factors that will affect the purchase price.
Our post-closing value is provided by our M&A team who is with you through your exit strategy. We consistently emphasize management of expenses, such as claims dollars, and improve EBITDA by managing these costs over the life of the investment. Lower expense leads to a higher EBITDA which, in turn, leads to a higher return on multiple.
Our international team of specialists consists of experienced consultants who have collectively reviewed thousands of transactions, providing deal-related solutions to our client base and the private equity community and portfolio companies.
