With effect from 1 October 2004, PricewaterhouseCoopers Financial Advisory Services Co., Ltd. (PwC FAS) will operate under a new name, PwC Advisory Co., Ltd.
Since our establishment in 1999 as a Japanese integrated member firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers, we have pioneered Business Recovery Services in the Japanese market, as well as offering advisory services in the areas of valuation and strategy, M&A, PFI, project finance and privatization, and disputes analysis and investigations.
Over this period the business recovery market has undergone a transformation, epitomized both by the enactment of the Civil Rehabilitation Law and the establishment of the Industrial Revitalization Corporation of Japan. Also the financial sector in Japan has consolidated. This has led to a shift in the focus of business recovery services from those centering around insolvency situations to those centering around business strategy and value creation.
