Portfolio performance through people

Australia is the top geography in the world for investment. Dealside is a specialist firm dedicated to the people dimensions of deals. Five V Capital’s impressive portfolio is packed with people intensive businesses. We are seeking an opportunity to learn more about your pain points and priorities. Some initial ideas are offered for
two of your interests on the next pages. We enjoyed taking a close outside in look at all of your holdings.

We proudly work with some of the top private equity firms, Mid-cap companies, deal designers and corporate strategy teams. With decades of experience and dozens of deals done we bring deep human capital and change expertise supporting our clients to buy well, integrate, grow and sell well.

Our service

Our service offering covers the full deal lifecycle. We know what matters at each stage and concentrate only on the real drivers of TSR. We fill the gap between PE partner portfolio oversight and inhouse operational HR.

Now more than ever dealmakers need phenomenal foresight. Imagine being able to predict how a business will perform? Knowing precisely how to supercharge growth from day 1. Our skill lies in being able to create trust and transparency with a target enabling far richer insights faster.
In Due diligence we find the traps and trapped value in the workforce that deliver vital valuation insights – without creating added stress, in fact, quite the opposite. We leverage these insights to raise deal appeal and to make the transition as friction free and painless as possible.

During integration and in the first year of the holding period we work with the CEO and leadership to create the right platform for growth. We raise the horsepower of your human capital. Watch performance and productivity soar when culture, customer and commercial impact are connected in a straightforward way. It’s this that drives TSR.

In exit we’re back to help with the various people aspects of pre-sale. Historically overlooked or under-done, effort and attention here greatly improves and protects price potential and market attraction.

Probe stands tall in a time of irreversible industry change. This behemoth is poised to be the deal of the decade. For a powerful growth story to play out, Five V Capital must have the multiplicity of human capital and change opportunities in clear view and under control.

  • Probe’s future operating model must be enabled by precise organisation design – how are you thinking about striking the winning combination of onshore and offshore team configuration whilst maxmising service automation and synergy realisation? Successfully integrating back, middle and front offices requires fundamentally different priorities for each, have you got consensus on these?
  • Probe is the superset of some well established brands with proud tradition, culture and leadership – of the 12,600 strong workforce, how are the top 100 leaders coping? Performing?
  • How long have you given yourselves to harmonize reward and remuneration?

Zenith has been playing a leading role in shaping the investment industry for
many years but now that market voice just got a whole lot more vital. Chant
West is onboard and it’s time to bring the power of the integration to life.

  • Are there any early surprises (good or not so good) that didn’t get picked up in due diligence?
  • How are you planning to bring the research methodologies and teams together? Similarly what changes in how you now go to market?
  • How different are Zenith and Chant West’s total cost of service?
  • Every integration provides a clear shot at performance elevation. What expectations have you set?
  • How do the Zenith and Chant West cultures align and differ?
  • Where must the growth come from?
  • What inhouse capabilities do you need more of to grow?
