AlixPartners was called in to transform a $17 billion aerospace & defense firm that was the product of a merger that brought together two companies and that had missed EBITDA targets quarter after quarter.

While the firm had utilized add-on acquisitions to build out its services, we found that dozens of acquisitions had not been fully integrated, and the company was missing out on any economy of centralization, spending hand over fist on overlapping core functions at its different businesses.

After streamlining the organization and incorporating disparate units into a cohesive culture, the firm hit $20 billion.
