Corporate Strategy and Acquisition Support

C Three uses a fully collaborative, data driven, and empirical approach.  Recent projects include:

  • Worked with a large, publicly traded company, that had acquired through two larger acquisitions, two electric transmission and distribution equipment manufacturing businesses that did not fit its corporate strategy. Provided market forecasts for both businesses as well as competitive analysis of each segment. Both businesses were eventually sold. 

  • Worked with a large manufacturer of electric transmission equipment and structures to understand the potential of the telecommunications market. This project also required identifying key manufacturers of telecommunications equipment and structures and estimated existing market share. Forecasts for specific components were developed as part of this project. 

  • Working with the manufacturer of industrial coatings and environmental protection systems, completed a 2008-2025 market forecast and competitive analysis for each of its major product lines, all of which are targeted to the electric transmission and distribution, pipelines and telecommunication markets.
