For the second consecutive year, PwC was named a leader in The ALM Vanguard: Transactions-Divestitures Consulting report. According to the report, “Clients – and this extends by now well into the middle-tier strata – have become more sophisticated about their portfolio and general growth strategy, and divestitures are an important tool in that kit.”
On PwC’s leadership placement, Tomek Jankowski, author of the report, states that the firm, “leads with technology as an integral part of a larger TAS process, using that technology to both improve client access and information while reducing cost. PwC combines this with the ability to offer a unified, relatively seamless approach across the span of the deal, whether global or local.”
PwC is also noted as Best in Class for Project Management. Jankowski says, “PwC consistently maintains team composition over long-term, complex deals. With its integrated delivery playbook, PwC is one of only a handful of firms able to play the lead project management role and shepherd clients through complex, multi-track deals.”
Jankowski expands on PwC’s offerings, noting, “PwC is a full-service, end-to-end provider in the M&A space. As the divestiture space becomes more crowded and, PwC makes its play around strategy in its Strategy& unit and a growing array of technology tools by looking beyond the transaction and helping clients make the right strategic decisions.”
The assessment on PwC concludes, “While all consulting firms are investing in data analytics capabilities and other related technology in response to client demand, PwC is more advanced than most, relying heavily on technology assets as part of its TAS client experience. PwC also uses these technologies to proactively identify M&A opportunities.”
“We are pleased to be ranked as an overall leader in Divestitures Consulting by ALM Intelligence,” said Mike Niland, PwC’s US Divestitures Services Leader. “PwC helps our clients confidently divest the right assets at the right time to drive and secure value. Our global team comprised of deals strategists, specialists and data scientist work on hundreds of divestitures every year. We realize that divestitures can be complex, so we collaborate closely with our clients and provide a robust digital divestiture solution to analyze the options of each deal from all angles, providing transparency and insights throughout the process.”
Malcolm Lloyd, Global Deals Leader at PwC, remarked, “We are delighted to be recognized for Transactions-Divestitures Consulting. We support our clients with a truly connected global network of industry experienced deal advisors coupled with data-driven insights that help to support more confident decisions. Our focus, at PwC, is that value is what will help you succeed throughout the deal lifecycle.”
