The target had a portfolio with some of the most recognisable savoury snacks brands in the UK, producing savoury biscuits and bagged snacks.
We were appointed by a private equity fund participating in the process to provide commercial and operational due diligence for this carve-out acquisition.
We reviewed the VDD and interviewed the consultants who produced the document. We analysed scan data to develop a deeper understanding of market dynamics and trends.
On this project we leveraged our wide network of expert associates in operations, supply chain and procurement to provide our client with unparalleled insight and to plan for the complex separation that the carve-out necessitated.
Ultimately our client did not pursue the acquisition of the target.
