OAK BROOK, IL (Dec 7, 2023) – E78 Partners, a private-equity focused business advisory firm, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Global PMI Partners USA (“GPMIP USA”), a consultancy recognized for its leading post-merger integration (PMI) services.
Founded in 2013, GPMIP USA has a long-standing reputation for optimizing the outcomes of merger and acquisition activities for its private equity and enterprise clients in the U.S. and Canada. The acquisition of GPMIP USA is E78 Partners’ 13th acquisition since its inception in 2016 and signifies a significant commitment to the private equity industry. GPMIP USA’s deep post-merger integration expertise and proven PMI process, combined with E78 Partners’ extensive range of financial and technology services, brings a unique and differentiated set of business transformation services to the marketplace. E78 Partners’ solutions now span the M&A lifecycle, from transaction and integration through optimization and sale readiness.
For sponsors and private equity-backed companies, navigating the complexities of post-merger integrations can be a daunting challenge. With an impressive track record and deep expertise, GPMIP USA has emerged as a trusted partner for firms seeking a battle-tested and scalable approach tailored to each client’s specific requirements. GPMIP USA’s approach minimizes operational burdens, increases the probability of realizing underwritten synergies, limits integration debt, and mitigates risks to provide a comprehensive solution for successful post-merger integrations.
As part of the acquisition, Stefan Hofmeyer and Scott Whitaker, two of the original founders of GPMIP USA, will join the E78 team to lead the company’s PMI, carve-outs and transaction services practice. “E78 Partners is committed to providing unparalleled service and supporting value creation to the private equity industry, and the addition of the GPMIP USA business allows us to deliver high-value, post-merger integration services to our install base of over 150 sponsor clients and hundreds of PE-backed platforms,” said John Signa, CEO and founder of E78 Partners. “We’re excited about the wealth of experience Stefan and Scott bring to our team and our clients.”
“We are thrilled to bring such a valuable set of capabilities into E78 Partners’ portfolio of services. So many of our clients come to us for transaction-related support, and we now have a turnkey solution for seamless post-transaction integration,” said Lisa Clarke, Executive Managing Director for Business Transformation Services at E78 Partners.
