Deals Strategy

The right deals for outsized returns

Deals Strategy that transforms high stakes into high growth

The deals environment has always been competitive. But today, smart private equity and corporate buyers take a broader view, move more quickly and create value beyond just cost take outs. Deal makers understand that value creation ultimately requires a combination of topline revenue growth with bottom-line cost optimization.

Achieving these objectives benefits from having the right advisor with deep sub-sector and subject matter expertise. It means putting proven deal analytics to work to uncover the insights needed to move forward. And no matter the scope of the engagement, it requires a partner that has the flexibility to address both short- and longer-term requirements. At PwC, we quickly drive a clear, straightforward path to success.

PwC’s Deals Strategy team supports private equity and corporate clients. We serve private equity clients with over $2.5 trillion in assets under management, with 80% of our clients relying on us for multiple projects. Publicly traded companies with a combined market capitalization of over $4 trillion turn to us to deliver across the deal lifecycle. From initial investment strategy development to commercial due diligence, to value creation post-close and exit, we’re here to help our clients drive growth.
