A combination of intensified globalization brought on by recent turbulence in the global economy and the acceleration of new information technologies is driving companies and governments to look for new business models to meet increased demands for efficiency, competitiveness, short-term agility and long-term growth.

Mergers & Acquisitions
High-performance businesses are constantly searching for ways to renew their portfolio of businesses to protect existing markets and enter new ones.
Merging with, or acquiring, an existing company is one of the key ways that such companies realize their growth goals.
ValuStrat provides a suite of services that can help companies identify M&A targets that will support their growth strategies. We help create a road map to mitigate risk and achieve the projected benefits—while allowing the organization to concentrate on its normal day-to-day business.
Because our pre-deal processes are highly efficient and can be scaled up or down according to the size of the potential deal, clients are able to align their pre-deal expenditures more effectively with the value they ultimately hope to generate from the transaction.
Marketing and Market Entry Strategies
The forces of globalization and economic volatility are transforming the dynamics of customer interaction, presenting even the most successful organizations with new challenges and opportunities.
Globalization is spurring competition and transforming market economics. New sources of competition—from virtually every part of the world—are eroding already weakened bonds of customer loyalty.
Rapid commoditization and extreme price pressure are undermining traditional sources of differentiation. Changing consumer values—in addition to entirely new consumer segments emerging in the world’s developing economies—present new sources of growth, along with new challenges to delivering satisfying, profitable customer experiences.
We are also the preferred consultants for many clients entering the Middle Eastern markets, with new products, brands or services. Our deep-rooted presence in the Middle East along with strong market knowledge and connections make us an ideal partner for new market entry strategies and business plan formation and evaluations.
