How external expertise changed the future of a PE investment

Technology transformation in private equity

For many PE houses, the decision to invest in a target company hinges on that business’s potential to deliver rapid digital transformation. The value of bringing in external consultants is two-fold. First, they can advise on technical due diligence and opportunities for value creation. Then, if the deal is done, the lead consultant can switch to an interim executive role – bringing in proven transformation experience that may be lacking in the portfolio company’s incumbent leaders. The interim’s expertise can build capacity, boost performance and deliver key change goals with a direct impact on EBITDA that justifies tech investment many times over.
