Corporate strategy

Corporate strategy

We help our clients determine the right strategic priorities to grow profitably and maximise value, and offer support and practical solutions to achieve these objectives.

Commercial due diligence

Commercial due diligence

We are a leading adviser to companies and private equity firms on the key commercial issues they face across all stages of the deal cycle.

We advise leadership teams on developing their strategies at group or business unit level to drive performance. We help companies make hard choices about what they want to be famous for (ambition), where they want to play (participation strategy), how they intend to win (competitive strategy) and what priorities to focus on (management agenda)

We work with you to drive international growth in mature and developing markets. We help you navigate the complexity about which countries/clusters to enter, which combination of models to adopt, and what implementation plan to put in place to unlock international opportunities at pace.

We help you set your business ambition, generate and evaluate key initiatives, identify other options to fill any gap versus your ambition, and deliver your plan. This gives confidence to stakeholders that targets will be met and focus to management on what to do and not to do.

We work with you to identify, screen and evaluate M&A targets to increase share of market, extend share of wallet and/or acquire core assets and capabilities. Our wider firm can support transactions and manage post-integration.

We help you to identify, prioritise and capture sustainable growth opportunities in your core business and from new sources. We work collaboratively with our clients to unlock growth opportunities in a creative but disciplined way.

We can support you in undertaking buy-side or vendor commercial due diligence in a variety of transaction scenarios including sale processes, acquisitions, and refinancing of both equity and debt. Our independent approach ensures we identify upside potential and risks.

We help companies prepare a business for sale to drive deal value by assisting management teams from developing their strategy and strategic plans, to writing business plans. Our independent approach challenges management to identify upside potential and mitigate risks.

We provide commercial insights during independent business reviews for both management teams and banks, typically during distressed situations. Our work helps identify the drivers of value and options for businesses to improve performance to support covenant setting and refinancing terms.

Our global strategy practice numbers more than 1,000 due diligence consultants, each with a specific sector focus enabling rapid diagnosis of key deal issues. Each member of the team can draw on the extensive expertise and the resources of PwC's worldwide industry network of over 195,000 people.

We regularly work alongside our financial and operational due diligence teams. As a result, PwC's conclusions are based on well-researched and integrated views on all aspects of the transaction.
