DATA ANALYTICS

Background

As part of a composites strategy client project, working with a multi-million-dollar global aerospace company, LES delivered an extensive M&A company screening analysis aided by extensive internal proprietary databases.

LES have developed a number of databases to support consultancy services containing in-depth analyses of companies within the global composites market which allow targeted down selection of filtering criteria including:

  • Location: Country, City
  • Company Size: Revenue, Employees
  • Sector: Aerospace, Defence, Automotive, Space, UAM/UAV, Heavy Duty Vehicle, Passenger Transport, Marine, Industrial, Construction & Infrastructure, Oil & Gas, Digital & Technology, Healthcare, Leisure.
  • Supplier Type: OEM, Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, Equipment or Tooling Provider, Raw Materials, Consumables or Intermediates Supplier, R&D/Technology Centre, SME, Associations, Third Parties, Services and Consultants.
  • Product/Service Type: Raw Material, Part Manufacture, Coatings and Finishings, Assembly, Maintenance & Repair, Testing, Recycling, Engineering Services, Machines and Equipment, Tooling.
  • Technology Areas: Traditional/Advanced Composite, Traditional/Advanced Metallic, 3D additive, Joining, Multifunctional Structures, Traditional/Advanced Assembly, Digital Twin/Factory 4.0, Recycling

These databases also include a ‘one-pager’ overview of hundreds of composites focussed companies across various criteria including:

  • Business Overview and Financial information
  • Business Highlights
  • Leadership and Growth Strategy
  • Supply Chain Level
  • Main Customers and Contracts
  • Manufacturing Capabilities
  • Engineering/Processing Capabilities
  • R&D/Technology Capabilities

Scope & Deliverables

For this specific project, LES were to:

  • Identify and acquire suitable M&A targets as part of a larger composites strategy project
  • Support the acquisition of an established composites technology company to provide instant credibility in the market, as well as technical and production capability and skills.

A SUSTAINABLE APPROACH

LES deployed an experienced team of technology and strategy experts to support the M&A business case, by creating a plan of activity for the M&A screening process, and carry out all company analysis and strategic fit scoring.

The process began with a company large dataset companies, which have been mapped globally, spanning 15+ markets. LES was tasked with down selecting this list to a final shortlist of 10 companies which would be targeted for engagement to understand the acquisition route.

The companies mapped on the supply chain included a mixture of material suppliers, part manufacturers, assemblers, tooling suppliers and others (incl. testing, logistics, distributors, etc) across both composite and metallic materials and were filtered to only include companies with:

  • Composite specific manufacturing technologies
  • Aerospace capabilities and contracts
  • Supply chain level within the specified bracket
  • Revenue within the specified bracket

These filters reduced the list to around 100 companies for LES to perform a deep-dive analysis, understanding the specific business highlights, market presence and technology capabilities for each business

LES created a proprietary ‘one-pagers’ for each company, providing an extensive overview of the specific capabilities of each company on a site to site basis across the given criteria. The one-pager format was created and shared with the client using LES softwares and was used to analyse the opportunity each company could deliver if acquired.

Further analysis of client-driven criteria allowed LES to reduce the shortlist to around 10 companies which were then targeted as part of the next stage of the process.

LES provided the client with a series of detailed reports supported by a full debrief session.
