Post-Transaction Services

MCG offers multiple post-transaction service offerings. These services range from project management to interim financial team support. Our post-transaction services help bring value and resolution to the most complex transactions across a wide variety of companies. We excel in ensuring projects are completed with careful thought, planning, and support.

Professional support during post-transaction allows your team to concentrate on doing the work needed to ensure the success of your business, and its new acquisition.

Catered for recent acquisitions, we have developed service offerings which focus on improving operational performance to drive EBITDA. They are designed to avoid the “business as usual mindset” by creating and implementing a robust plan shortly after an acquisition is made.

MCG strives to be a true partner to you, and as such, we believe in working closely and creatively with you throughout your engagement. You can find a breakdown of our consulting services below. Please contact us if you believe you have need of them. We are happy to consult with you to determine the best plan of action to fit your needs.
