Newport Board Group has a powerful presence and deep expertise in Technology and Communications-centered businesses. Technology enabled and technology differentiated organizations, are a critical focus of the majority of Newport’s partners. In addition, our Technology partners deploy broad operating expertise in segments of the industry including Software, IT Services, Hardware, Semiconductor, Telecom, and Internet/Digital Media. Through regular interactions we share best practices, learn from thought leaders and discuss current issues with Private Equity and Investment Banking firms who are active in this space.
With the tools Newport has developed to categorize and connect our expertise, we’re able to bring the resources of the Newport Expert Network™ to bear on our client’s most pressing issues. An example would be: advising a Private Equity firm regarding due diligence for a bolt-on acquisition to a current portfolio company in the IT Outsourcing space, an industry segment ripe for consolidation. Newport professionals, who have deep operating experience in this segment, assist the Private Equity firm with an hour-long phone discussion. This conversation will yield a number of opportunities to add value and identify areas, which warrant further, deep review to minimize risk.
