OMMAX Supported AURELIUS on the Sale of Distrelec

#Announcement#Digital Readiness Assessment#Vendor Due Diligence

OMMAX supported the AURELIUS Group on the sale of Distrelec, a leading distributor of electronic and technical components with Headquarters in Manchester, UK. In preparation for the sale of Distrelec, OMMAX supported AURELIUS through a Digital Exit Readiness program followed by a Vendor Due Diligence spanning the modules Digital, Tech, Logistics and Procurement.

In Digital Exit Readiness, OMMAX examined the company's digital performance, evaluating dimensions such as digital market dynamics, competitive landscape, digital marketing performance, tech setup, and capabilities, as well as identified value creation potential to strengthen the equity story. This was followed by a phase of hands-on execution (involving e.g. SEO / SEA performance and business intelligence) support over several months. A dedicated KPI dashboard helped measure progress on digital and customer KPIs.

Finally, OMMAX prepared a vendor due diligence report covering digital, technology, logistics and procurement. Digital capabilities (i.e. SEO, SEA, marketing automation), technology setup (i.e. technology strategy, system architecture, IT infrastructure and software development lifecycle) and capabilities, as well as logistics, procurement and warehousing capabilities were presented in the report in a compelling equity story.

Toni Stork, Founder and CEO at OMMAX, comments: “We would like to congratulate AURELIUS on the successful transaction of Distrelec. It was a great pleasure to work on this Digital Exit Readiness, the execution project and the Vendor Due Diligence!”

AURELIUS was very content with the prolonged and comprehensive support that OMMAX delivered around the sale of Distrelec. The work of the Digital Exit Readiness provided an excellent preparation, which culminated in a compelling equity story in the Vendor Due Diligence report.
