Mergers & Acquisitions
Milliman consultants have helped many clients manage human capital issues in their M&A transactions. Our objective is to help our clients achieve the goals of their investment thesis. People are often the most critical resource of an organization, and managing the complex issues that deal with people, rewards, and culture is our strength.
Our dedicated professionals have the knowledge and experience to be highly effective in the M&A deal environment. We can assist with thorough review of the human capital deal terms, benefit plan financials, program designs, plan documents, and possible changes to benefits when a merger, acquisition, or divestiture takes place. Years of experience with buyouts, mergers, and takeovers prove Milliman to be a global leader in M&A consulting.
Identifying and understanding the risks and potential costs of the benefits programs is critical for the success of all divestiture and acquisition transactions. Milliman has developed sophisticated tools for analyzing these risks, and we can confidently guide clients through the complexities of each proposal. Our services include pre-merger analysis, comprehensive due diligence, current plan analysis and comparison, benefit design, employee communication, plan changes, day one readiness, and post-merger integration.
At Milliman, we listen closely to each company’s goals to provide stability and perspective during transitions in today’s volatile economic environment. Our consultants will work with you to develop the critical strategy that establishes your direction, deliver a smooth implementation, and effectively communicate with internal and external stakeholders to assure buy-in and achievement of your goals.
Milliman’s experts can provide comprehensive HR support that addresses all stages of the deal—whether our role is to lead the HR element of the transaction or manage one key component.
Clients rely on us as industry experts, trusted advisors, and creative problem-solvers. A global perspective is more important than ever as the marketplace grows and businesses cross borders. With offices in principal cities worldwide, Milliman combines international experience with local expertise. We help our clients understand how business is affected by developments around the world.
