M&A

Often the fastest way to deliver growth into a business is through mergers and acquisitions. With over 12 years experience in M&A through both my Executive career and advisory role I have operated across multiple international markets including the UK, Russia, Ukraine, China, India & Brazil. I work with you to assess M&A opportunities from both a strategic perspective, right down into detailed financial, commercial and operational delivery.

Key outputs include:

  • Assessment of a range of potential M&A targets
  • Insight into competitor bidders and negotiation strategies
  • Development of strategy and 5 year plan
  • Detailed financial & commercial due diligence vs business plan provided by the acquisition target
  • Business valuation
  • Investment case and board presentations
  • Post-deal integration planning
  • Talent review and succession planning within the target company
  • Post-deal execution and integration

Jeannette is high energy, thoughtful and a real pleasure to work with.

Over the last four years of working with Jeannette to develop our market presence within emerging markets, I have been impressed by her consistent energy, drive and determination to achieve and surpass our objectives and targets. Jeannette has led significant M&A deals, delivered business turnaround plans and joint ventures in some of the most challenging international environments. Jeannette is a well-respected and commercially astute business leader who provides great inspiration to her teams.

Will Waggott – CEO Specialist Travel TUI Group

I had a great pleasure to work with Jeannette Linfoot when she was MD of the Emerging Markets at TUI, when we sold our business VKO to TUI, as well as in the process of TUI Launch in Russia and CIS. Jeannette is a highly skilled and experienced business woman with an approachable and honest style that makes doing business with her an absolute pleasure. Jeannette`s professionalism and interpersonal skills allowed her to cultivate a strong team environment and productive working relationships with VKO staff. During that challenging period Jeannette brought a long and varied background that can be really hard to find nowadays and TUI benefited much by having her in their team.
In summary, Jeannette did an excellent job and I would definitely recommend Jeannette to anyone, as a board advisor, mentor or investor.
