A company undergoing a strategic transition such as a merger, acquisition, or divestiture, risks losing value and control. The chaos surrounding the transition often impedes a company's ability to simultaneously focus on maintaining current operations, realizing valuable deal synergies, and achieving timely integration. Without a clear and comprehensive approach and the resources to achieve these strategic priorities, the company could miss unique opportunities, hinder transition efforts, and create unnecessary and potentially substantial risks.
PricewaterhouseCoopers' (PwC) approach to a corporate reorganization focuses on shareholder value and managing the risks relating to the transaction. We emphasize clear communication of tax and structuring issues in a commercial context. Our aim is not only to assist in identifying and managing the risks involved in the reorganization, but more importantly, to assist in identifying and capitalizing on the opportunities.
Ours is a collaborative approach in which our tax professionals work with clients and other advisors (e.g. lawyers, audit company, investment banks, etc.). We provide effective and high-value reorganization related tax services in cooperation with our global PwC M&A tax service team and our Assurance and Advisory practices in Japan.
Our experience covers a wide range of services at all stages of the reorganization process. Services provided by our office include the following:
