Objectives and Key Deliverables

We're an independent management consulting firm. We are planning a due diligence exercise for a proposed acquisition in the Korean cosmetic industry. There are 5 modules contemplated:

1. Profile the company and its historic performance (What are we buying?)

- Product and brand portfolio
- Manufacturing arrangements
- Distribution arrangements by market
- Organisation structure and staffing levels by function
- Sources of revenue and profit (by market, by distribution channel, by brand

Activities: management interviews, review of management accounts

2. Assess the company’s growth plans by market (what plans are in place, how credible are they?)

- South Korea, China, USA, Europe, other

Activities: Management interviews (SK, China, USA); buyer interviews (Europe)

3. Gauge the company’s reputation in its channels (What do its distributors and retailers think of it?)

Activities: Interviews with retailers and distributors

4. Gauge the company’s reputation among end-users (What do consumers think of its products/what is the repeat purchase rate?)

Activities: consumer phone interviews

5. Create a 100 day post-acquisition plan (what do we do with the company going forwards?)

We are seeking a Seoul-based native Korean speaker with top tier strategy consulting experience and the ability to provide both analytical insight and a shrewd assessment of management capabilities. References essential.

The project will most likely start early February and will be for a duration of 4-8 weeks.
