With our dedicated specialists in our global Transaction Services business, we can bring you, our client, a combination of financial, commercial and operational insight to every deal. We deliver unparalleled knowledge as we navigate the deal process with you.
Whether you are making an acquisition, divestiture, or strategic alliance, in each case we have the same objective – to make sure you get the maximum return on your deal.
Any organisation considering a deal needs to check all the assumptions it makes about that deal. Financial due diligence offers peace of mind to both corporate and financial buyers because it analyses and validates all the financial, commercial, operational and strategic assumptions being made. It also uses past trading experience to form a view of the future and ensure there are no 'black holes'.
Service components include revenue, commercial and market due diligence, synergy validation, maintainable earnings, future cash flows, all operational issues, and deal structuring.
If your company is up for sale - or you are selling off one of its parts – you’ll need to show an in-depth report on its financial health to potential buyers - this is vendor due diligence. We help both buyers and sellers (vendors) with an independent view of the business, encompassing its performance and prospects.
Our vendor assistance specialists work alongside your company management and your lead advisers throughout the process, making sure that opportunities and issues are understood and the correct steps are taken.
Dealmakers should consider value drivers and risks to all aspects of their business when executing their deals. Our Deals capabilities help clients address a wide range of business issues.
M&A is one of the quickest paths to growth. But it’s not the surest, and too often, stakeholders do not get the enterprise value promised from the deal. Deals are inherently complex and laden with risk, whether they occur domestically or in a foreign market. Valuations are complicated by clarity of cash flows, complex accounting rules and tax legislation. And integrations are difficult to execute. So how can you be confident your deal will deliver value to stakeholders?
Dealmakers should consider value drivers and risks to all aspects of their business when setting their M&A strategy and when doing their diligence on the deal. Take into consideration market dynamics and do business-wide diligence across costs, revenue, systems, talent and compliance to best position yourself to deliver value from your transaction. Make sure you understand which risks are inherent, which ones are avoidable, and where you can negotiate value. You’ll be able to make better decisions around optimal market entry options, be more powerful in your negotiations and anticipate or avoid risks that can happen post-close.
The result can be worth it — a seamless execution of your deal, synergies captured during your integration, and value delivered to your stakeholders. And strategic corporate objectives met.
