Deal Analytics

Delivering business-driven, data-fueled human thinking

How M&A analytics can create deeper insights, better decisions and greater value

At PwC we’re betting big on data, analytics, and a digital revolution to transform the way deals are done. Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) analytics is increasingly a major driver of competitive advantage in transactions and value creation for portfolio companies.

PwC uses advanced techniques in data science to help you make smarter decisions, uncover more value and create better returns on investment. From predictive analytics to machine learning and beyond. We bring data insights in the moment, and agility that helps you change course for what’s next.

Our deal analytics practice blends data scientists and deal professionals. Their sector-specific approach, applying proprietary solutions, data sets and subject matter knowledge, brings hypothesis-based diligence at deal speed. Our teams focus on improving insight, lowering risk and a clearer path to value creation.

Beginning with deal threshold questions, our PwC deal analytics specialists build analysis to support deal models and equity stories across the full deal continuum. Our global M&A data analytics community drives data-fueled, human thinking that increases value before, during and after your transaction.
