Strategic Consulting

HESCO addresses the critical questions facing senior executives and develops blueprints for growth and increased value through its proven project development skills in business. We apply the demonstrated insight and expertise to achieve an organization’s business goals, whether that involves realigning overarching corporate strategy, or identifying how individual business units can make the greatest possible contribution to the entire organization. Our understanding of market trends and drivers, along with deep industry expertise and analytical firepower, enables us to develop actionable strategies that create measurable long-term value for projects and organizations. We tap our vast knowledge to uncover hidden opportunities and provide the evidence-based analysis executives need to make informed decisions.

HESCO assists in identifying sources of potential acquisition and mergers if desired. Participants will examine the roles of outside organizations such as investment banking firms, business brokers, and the general business network.

The importance of clearly articulating the enterprise strategy before embarking on merger or acquisition activity are: 

  • Achieve alignment on management expectations about mergers and acquisitions.
  • Establish a process for evaluating potential merger and acquisition candidates.
  • Screen potential merger and acquisition candidates.
  • Complete a financial evaluation of merger and acquisition candidates.
  • Estimate the value of merger and acquisition candidates.
  • Conduct due diligence.
  • Develop and implement an assimilation plan to guide post-merger integration activities.

Expanding to new markets means adapting to unknown conditions. HESCO services can help your business explore and enter markets beyond your domestic borders. Our international specialists assist companies by exploring overseas opportunities, developing international business plans, positioning their products and services to compete effectively, and supporting global operations.

Strategic Execution

The reasons to use an adviser are compelling: broader marketing identifies less obvious buyers who will often pay a premium; experience avoids common pitfalls; and resource and focus makes transactions happen. HESCO business services practice is particularly known for its ability to:

Leverage global delivery capabilities – nationally and worldwide to resolve the in-depth issues arising in transactions.
Create value from a transaction, not just transfer it – by merging an in-depth understanding of businesses potential with flexible transaction methodologies.
Integrate a full range of functional experts – to ensure all transaction issues are addressed and save you the trouble of managing multiple advisors.
Address the specific challenges facing mid-cap companies – presenting challenges as opportunities, in a resource-constrained environment, is our strength.
By advising on a wide range of transactions, we reduce the pressure on top executives and create substantial value for our clients.
The HESCO team will, through its engineering, consulting, project development, project management and investment business integration, identify opportunities for purchase and securing of additional industry assets under the company’s umbrella. These researched assets will be considered not only for current operations, but for available and pending HESCO project contracts being sculpted and trafficked toward the company’s entity.

In addition, a strong focus will be held on assets that will fit into the larger Expansion element of the company’s footprint – operations and core competencies not necessarily being maximized to date. These relate to expansion via mergers/acquisitions discussions.
