Working for EY-Parthenon Deal Technology

Who we are

We are a leading strategic advisor to corporate and private equity (PE) executives and investors within the digital and IT ecosystem. When clients are looking to acquire, merge or divest part of their company or portfolio, our practice can assist with their technical strategy. For example:

  • PE client buying a business from another company (carve-out): What does the IT operation and organization look like once the business is carved out from the seller company? What will be the IT running cost at that point? What will be the investment needed to get to that point?
  • Client chief information officer: Our company just committed a 10% sales, general and administrative cost synergy to the Street. What levers can we pull in the digital and IT space to meet this synergy target?
  • Life sciences client looking to grow market share: How can my prospective acquisition’s cloud and robotic process automation investments support my sales growth goals?

The work we do

Our team excels in defining and supporting strategies in each phase of the merger and acquisition and divestiture life cycles. From assisting in the appraisal of different acquisition options, to helping prepare a company for acquisition, to implementing synergy and business goals, our team has the skill sets and experience to support our clients.

Our practice can provide strategies, business cases and insights that span across the cloud, data and analytics, applications, IT infrastructure, cyber, digital products, and technology financial management to help investors and clients make informed transaction and business decisions.

Key areas of work within a transaction:

  • Drive digital and technology strategies 
  • Identify opportunities within IT to meet and to exceed transaction synergy goals (e.g., investments and cost enhancement)
  • Support digital, cyber and IT infrastructure diligence
  • Stand up IT management, governance and operating models for the portion of a company that is being sold
  • Digital transaction advisory (e.g., vendor and sourcing analysis, integration planning, separation plan, digital transformation post-deal)
  • Perform cybersecurity assessments (e.g., identify technical vulnerabilities, recommend cyber strategies, evaluate the total potential losses due to cyber risks

The experience we bring

Our leadership team includes former chief information officers, chief technology officers, digital entrepreneurs and FBI executives. With this background, we bring a clear passion and understanding of technology, along with how it impacts business strategies and goals. Whether you need to invest in a new market, reduce costs or modernize an IT portfolio, our team can not only build the strategy but also implement it.
