Post-merger integration of an energy business

Post-merger integration: Seamless Integration of Diverse Industries for Enhanced Business Synergy

Facilitating the Post-Merger Integration of an Energy, Telecommunications, and Property Technology Businesses to Form a Comprehensive Solution Provider – Smart Urban Properties Australia (Supa).

MHC’s client, an embedded network operator, merged with a telecom and 2 technology businesses. This formed Smart Urban Properties Australia (Supa) – a one-stop-shop for property developers to install services into their developments.
