Private equity advisory

For corporate and management teams wanting to invest in or take control of their organisations, and private equity houses looking for the right investment for their funds, the PwC Middle East's corporate finance team provide advice and execution expertise on private equity transactions. On the buy side, we project manage the entire buy side process that involves review and advise on the valuation, deal structure and diligence results, structured coordination of communications between the advisers of both parties (buyer and the seller), the management of the seller, and undertake commercial review of deal documents. On the sell side, PwC Corporate Finance leverages on its strong international network of investors to carefully select the right buyers for the invested assets of the private equity houses.

In 2012, PwC Corporate Finance advised one of the leading private equity houses in divesting their entire stake in Rigidal Industries Ltd to Kingspan Group Plc. The details of the transaction can be found under the section ‘Selected case studies’.
