Stout advisors help with effective planning of IT initiatives required for eventual integration or separation.

Prior to a transaction closing, it is essential for both buyers and sellers to plan and align on key activities leading up to and beyond the financial close. Given the limited time between deal announcement and close, it’s important to utilize this window effectively to plan IT initiatives required for eventual integration or separation.

Stout professionals have significant experience helping clients define and execute both IT strategy and related plans with the intent to maximize deal value. Our experience spans multiple industries including healthcare, technology, manufacturing, aviation, financial technology, and telecommunication.

Our Post Deal-Close IT Services

Day 1 Readiness

We help clients identify actionable IT initiatives related to key IT areas of focus such as applications, infrastructure, security etc., that can be separated from the seller’s IT environment prior to Day 1, which accelerates the transition of operations.

Transition Services Agreements (TSA)

We help clients understand the level of IT dependencies supported by the seller, document comprehensive TSAs, and advise on appropriate TSA durations and service levels to reduce potential business continuity risks for the target.


We support our clients in identifying the future state of the target’s IT environment including infrastructure, applications, security, and organization. In addition, we help identify appropriate strategies to achieve the desired future state and maximize potential synergies and value.

Program Management Support

Our professionals advise clients on how to establish the most appropriate governance structure for managing the potential integration or separation, and help execute the overall program by providing both managers and subject matter advisors.
