Established for over 24 years, Postern’s name is synonymous with turnaround, transformational change and global restructuring. We are the original ‘Company Doctors’. We focus on optimising business performance operationally and financially.

Whether to maximise enterprise value, de-risk stakeholders, provide buy-side due diligence, or to support profitable exits by implementing corrective improvement actions we bring comprehensive solutions to complicated situations.

Postern works with lenders, private equity, family offices, fund of funds, venture capitalists, corporates, and stakeholders. We are able to run operational and financial diagnostic reviews (PDR) on an individual, or on a portfolio of companies. We assess the value drivers and destroyers, examining inherent threats and hidden tensions or management issues and implement value creation through best practices. Postern delivers global experience and a safe pair of hands to any situation across the U.K. and Europe.

Postern Operates In A Matrix

Postern operates in a matrix, and not a pyramid manner – we are dynamic and not linear We build our work teams from a targeted mix of highly competent seasoned practitioners with complementary expertise

The resulting synergy means that the team can deliver an outcome much higher than the sum of their individual parts Our executives are recruited only from people who have a deep track record of success, real operational experience and specific world class skills, and an independence of spirit In effect we are ‘doers’ who have deep experience of practice, and not consultants who have deep experience of advising others Independence and fresh thinking is thus built into our mind-set from the start This enables us to develop work approaches and solutions that respond and relate more realistically, real time, to a client’s specific circumstances, needs and requirements We do not take a standardised one-size fits all approach We accept that business is complex, messy and ever changing and we work in a manner that embraces these challenges and meets the aspiration of our clients, within the bounds of what is achievable.

We improve businesses and facilitate M&A deals.
