Controlling the Narrative.
For any merger or acquisition, strategic communications play a critical role in the success of the transaction.
LEVICK is a trusted advisor to leadership teams and Boards of Directors in transaction communications. We work to ensure an optimal outcome for a transaction, regardless of size or complexity. This includes planning for possible risks including potential activism, regulatory scrutiny, political challenges and business disruption, to executing a comprehensive multi-stakeholder strategic communications plan across the life cycle of a transaction.
The foundation of our communications plan is a powerful narrative – a narrative able to communicate a clear value proposition and consistent messaging from pre-announcement planning to post-merger integration. Our focus is on effectively communicating rationale to optimize support for a successful transaction, building momentum for the combined company’s corporate vision and promoting business continuity and long-term enterprise value through a structured and controlled process to a broad group of stakeholders.
Just as important as the overall structure or operational and financial impact of a transaction, we believe the positioning and communication of a transaction to all stakeholders achieve greater synergies during M&A integration.
Communicating Every Step.
We have decades of experience helping public and private companies across various industry sectors through every step of the transaction process, from pre-announcement planning to post-merger integration. Our practitioners have extensive experience in assisting companies with mergers, acquisitions and divestitures and spin-offs, guiding them through the many challenges they may face in the process.
