In a high-stakes scenario like M&A, where everything boils down to realizing synergies, a “clean room” can be invaluable. It provides enterprises working on an M&A deal with a safe environment for comparing sensitive data, allowing for a much faster assessment of the deal’s prospects for success or failure.
Mergers & Acquisitions
Drive greater value from procurement in M&A deals
M&A clean rooms, also known as data rooms, allow enterprises to create a virtual or physical repository of all relevant organizational data, including spend data and other confidential information. A “clean team,” with an empowered group of third-party consultants operating under clearly defined terms, can swiftly and accurately analyze this data — which is then used to identify potential synergies and challenges, and make critical decisions that may impact the structure of the deal.
GEP helps enterprises set up an M&A data room and a clean team that ensures confidentiality for both sides. This process aids development of granular, ready-to-launch execution plans.
