International Expansion and M&A Advisory

Helping our clients navigate the complexities,
challenges, and opportunities of growth in an
increasingly global business context

One of Metis Strategy’s three main practice areas comprises our International Expansion and M&A Advisory service. This practice area leverages on our competitive landscape and market analysis, expansion strategy development, M&A due diligence, and post-merger integration expertise. It includes the investigation of geographic and operational growth opportunities as well as the identification of partnership opportunities and expansion modes. We help our clients navigate the complexities, challenges, and opportunities of growth in an increasingly global business context. We find that successful organizations struggle with international expansions and M&A not due to financial shortfalls, but rather due to a lack of strategic alignment and insufficient planning, management, and execution of those plans that accompany the financial transactions.

“Metis Strategy analyzed our level of maturity across a very complex organization, and their recommendations, in some cases to centralize, in others to federate, achieved significant benefits.”

Bill Krivoshik, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer of Time Warner Inc. and Former CIO of Marsh & McLennan Companies

Metis Strategy has successfully helped U.S. clients identify market opportunities outside the U.S. and has investigated specific target markets, assessing their viability and strategic fit. Similarly, our team members have experience assisting companies outside the U.S. with their market entry strategy as well. We fully recognize that there are plenty of options of what one can do, but it is often the decision of what not to do that is the most difficult.

We lead our clients through the analysis prior to a transaction or with the integration efforts following the transaction. Integrating organizations, cultures, processes, and technologies is an immense challenge, but our experienced consultants understand the full life cycle of such an integration and can help your company proactively manage that change.
