Plastics Processing

Offshore competition, e-bidding, record high resin prices, customer consolidation, escalating customer demands, over-capacity, and advancing technology are challenging the very survival of plastic processors today. Intense pressure to reduce costs, innovate, and expand into new markets has to be balanced with the downward trends on prices and margins. As a result, more and more plastics processors are finding that reliance solely on an organic growth strategy does not provide the revenue and performance increases required to stay competitive.

This environment has led to an increase in merger and acquisition deals between plastics processors of all sizes. However, many firms lack both the time and expertise required to navigate through the myriad of complexities associated with these transactions. They are unprepared to recognize or account for many of the risks that may arise during the due diligence and integration phases of these deals. The sad fact is that without effective transaction support, many potential revenue-generating and performance-enhancing opportunities are missed and most of these mergers and acquisitions are doomed to failure.
