We believe that the ODD and CDD are two sides of the same coin. Emerald is an expert in performing separate ODD & CDD projects; however, we also take great pride in our ability to provide a holistic due diligence assessment, combining the scope of operational and commercial due diligence.

In our integrated approach, we analyze and make connections between the critical operational and commercial due diligence elements to provide a differentiating deal and financial model offering to our customers who are making investments in industrial acquisitions.

We have a complete understanding of the growth strategy, market offering, operations fitness, and competitive dynamics across the industries we serve for all industrial deals. We can then cross-reference it against the operational aspects, such as operational benchmarking, gap analysis, manufacturing footprint analysis, among many others, to maximize your investment potential in M&A deals in power, oil & gas water, specialized industrials, aerospace, and energy storage.

This critical deep domain knowledge and specialization is what makes us stand out from other consulting firms.

  • Deep domain knowledge
  • Relevant P&L experience
  • Extensive market knowledge
  • Knowledge of mega-trends and future disruptive technologies

Emerald has a rich and extensive talent base that can collaborate with a corporate business unit’s expert to identify the right strategy to meet the strategic growth goals. Emerald can segment critical markets of our clients and together determine the right inorganic and organic growth initiatives.

Emerald differs from generalist strategic advisory firms as we have the relevant market operations and P&L experience within the sectors we serve. This advantage allows us to collaborate with our clients’ management teams without going through a learning curve.

The investment company’s fund strategy always confines private equity investors. Emerald’s core domain experience allows private equity businesses to identify the right growth engines for investment aligned with the fund transaction and ESG (environmental, social, and corporate governance) parameters.
