We work side by side with executives to help their companies create unprecedented value. We have deep experience in finance, organization design, M&A, investor relations management and change management. We help organizations create competitive advantages through strategic corporate finance.
We take an integrated view that links corporate strategy, financial strategy, transactions and a capital markets perspective to help executives and their teams create value. We also help companies improve investor relations and effectively respond to activist investors. As you make critical decisions about allocating resources and seizing opportunities, we can help you:
- Understand what drives total shareholder return (TSR) in your industry and benchmark your company’s performance against peers, using our TSR diagnostic. We help you enhance your capital markets strategy by pinpointing the root causes of gaps between intrinsic vs. market values and identifying ways to close them. We show you how to use your balance sheet as a strategic weapon, and how to develop your equity story to communicate effectively with investors and analysts.
- Master your M&A strategy across the entire process, from valuation considerations, due diligence and preannouncement planning to merger integration, divestitures and separations, and support for selective parts of the IPO process. We have completed more than 10,000 M&A-related projects; over the course of a decade, Bain-supported integrations created roughly 18% higher shareholder returns than typical mergers, while Bain-supported spin-offs achieved market cap increases 20% higher than the industry average.
- Create and lead a world-class finance function that creates shareholder value by uniting strategy, business planning, resource allocation, performance management and zero-based budgeting. We also help CFOs and other senior executives build winning operating models. Our extensive benchmarking databases help you significantly improve your operating effectiveness and efficiency.
