Private Equity Platform Creation
For Private Equity investors, add-on acquisition is a key component of the buy-and-build strategy and overall PE playbook, accounting for roughly 50% of all buyouts globally and more than 65% in the U.S. Concurrently, buy-and-build strategies are quickly becoming the cornerstone of PE value creation, with over 25% of Private Equity organizations adding five businesses or more and 10% of them adding 10 or more.
Because of this, we want to help streamline the buy-and-build process by focusing more time and resources on operational improvements, such as IT implementation. It is crucial to create an IT Platform early in the investment cycle instead of waiting for add-ons to be acquired. To do so, our team builds scalable, cost-optimized growth platforms to assist companies in their buy-and-build strategies, strengthening their overall growth and integration.
RKON’s Platform Creation Strategy
Organizations frequently underestimate the positive impact of creating an IT platform in the early stages of a consolidation. RKON has developed a proven, repeatable model that creates standards while institutionalizing key processes and simplifying post-merger integration. Instead of starting the integration process two to three years into the deal cycle, we help you execute a profitable exit strategy from day one.
We develop an action roadmap and begin executing an IT plan designed to support maximum asset value creation as soon as you close. By rapidly building standards-based IT after a transaction, RKON can reduce transition time, IT costs, and risk and create flexible and portable exit options. Our data-driven decision model puts together a low-cost, high-performing IT plan to optimize your systems while also reducing the IT footprint by as much as 40%. When it’s time to sell an asset, RKON ensures that your IT platform is fully optimized so there are no red flags in your buyer’s diligence.
