BUY AND BUILD PLATFORM

WHAT WE DO

For PE investors, add-on acquisition is a key component of the buy and build strategy and overall PE playbook, accounting for roughly half of all buyouts globally and more than two-thirds in the U.S.

As buy and build strategies are quickly becoming the cornerstone of PE value creation, we want to help streamline the buy and build process by focusing more time and resources on operational improvements, such as IT implementation. To do so, our team ingeniously builds scalable, optimized growth platforms to assist companies in their buy and build strategies, strengthening their overall growth and integration. 

RKON's Buy and Build Strategy

Organizations are underestimating the positive impact of creating an IT platform early in the deal cycle. RKON has developed a proven, repeatable model that creates standards while institutionalizing key processes and simplifying post-merger integration. Instead of ​starting the integration process 2-3 years into the deal cycle, we help you execute a profitable exit strategy from day one.

We develop an action roadmap and begin executing an IT plan designed to support maximum asset value creation as soon as you close. By rapidly building standards-based IT after a transaction, RKON can reduce transition time, IT costs, and risk and create flexible and portable exit options.  Our data-driven decision model puts together a low-cost, high-performing IT plan to optimize your systems while also reducing the IT footprint by as much as 40%. When it’s time to sell an asset, RKON ensures that your IT platform is fully optimized so there are no red flags in your buyer’s diligence.
