How can Paranet Help?

experience

Our expert IT Due Diligence analysis will not necessarily kill an acquisition if it finds IT shortcomings, but the output allows better decisions by rating the target company from a technological standpoint. Often, the analysis will generate a to-do list, not unlike a home inspection does with the purchase of a new house, or it generates a suggested adjustment to the purchase price. An expert analysis provides, in essence, the best estimate of the additional investment needed to make the company competitive and scalable. IT due diligence exemplifies the old adage that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Acquisition Due Diligence

Paranet’s structured process assesses the capability, scalability and stability of a target company’s IT infrastructure. It also valuates the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the IT department.

Acquisition Support

Our team of IT experts can help smooth the transition as companies come together, eliminating redundancies and helping facilitate the economies of scale.

Merger Due Diligence

Paranet can help fully assess the costs, risks and other potential hang-ups of a proposed merger, whether in finance, management, infrastructure or operations. Integration issues can range from software compliance to regulatory concerns.


Carve-outs

Effective collaboration between IT and business is critical during a carve-out. During divestiture or while companies are being separated, Paranet can help sort out the IT implications, prioritizing applications and data to be separated and determining IT restrictions and implications for functional areas.

What they say about Paranet
" When Paranet works on a project with us, it’s to identify exactly what’s needed such as software, hardware, network capacity, phone infrastructure, security, etc. It’s a complete discovery process. Everything they find factors into our financial model, our offer price, the timelines, the TSA. We get a holistic view of what it’ll take for the company to operate independently.
