CHICAGO (May 26, 2021) Crowe, a public accounting, consulting and technology firm in the U.S. with offices around the world, has been identified as a Pacesetter in the recently released report, “ALM Intelligence Pacesetter Research: M&A Services 2021-2022,” ranking among leading multiservice firms for bringing together integrated mergers and acquisitions core offerings. The report assesses providers’ services and capabilities and their ability to deliver client impact in today’s environment. Among the 21 market leaders in M&A identified by the ALM Pacesetter Advisory Council and analyzed within the report, Crowe was one of only four firms rated as a Pacesetter, placing Crowe among those providers evaluated as having the highest impact for clients.
ALM Intelligence determines Pacesetter status by evaluating market leaders against five criteria: business model, value proposition, service delivery, client enablement and brand eminence. Crowe scored high across all categories, and the report highlights the strength of the firm’s playbook approach to M&A.
“At Crowe, we take pride in our ability to provide exceptional client experiences by offering fully integrated support throughout each phase of the M&A value chain,” said Curt Gendron, Crowe partner and operational transaction advisory leader. “We are honored to be recognized as a leader in the M&A field by ALM Intelligence.”
According to the report, “A traditional approach to M&A among multiservice providers would be to develop services spanning the entire deal spectrum, and use that detailed expertise to soak up as much project share as possible by functioning as de facto project managers. Crowe has recently developed a different tact, building what amounts to a managed services approach by helping clients (especially private equity) develop a playbook early on that identifies the full potential value that can be realized throughout the full lifecycle of an asset, and how and where Crowe can help at every step of that lifecycle, pre-deal through the life of the investment.”
When evaluating Crowe based on the Pacesetter criteria, the report states, “Crowe’s new value creation playbook approach both helps clients develop the internal expertise and capabilities to intelligently think about and manage the long-term performance of their assets while providing managed services-style support through that journey, deepening client relationships (moving beyond traditional transactional client relationships) and also giving Crowe detailed insight into asset life cycles and quality.”
“Our team is committed to working collaboratively with clients to guide them through the M&A process by complementing existing skill sets and helping them develop in-house capabilities in order to achieve long-term success,” said Kevin Lane, Crowe advisory partner.
