Due diligence

Harness the power of data-driven insights and integrated analysis to extract maximum value from each transaction

Create and capture opportunities in Acquisitions, Divestitures and Alliances that build lasting value

When considering a major transaction, such as buying another company, selling off a division of your company, or partnering with a new alliance, it is essential to perform a comprehensive assessment of deal value. 

Whether you are a buyer or a seller, PwC’s integrated due diligence approach can provide in-depth analysis of the financial, commercial, and operational aspects of your deal. Our team of sector and deals specialists will efficiently deliver a number of clear benefits, including: 

  • Detailed business analysis to support opinions and conclusions
  • Crucial financial considerations for deal and value assessment 
  • Quantified value creation levers 
  • 100-day transition plan with highlighted post-acquisition, integration and separation issues 
  • Exit strategy impacts related to the equity provider 

The right insights at the right time for the right deals 

To get a complete picture of the benefits and risks associated with each deal, PwC can prepare a data-driven and in-depth assessment of your proposed transaction across three primary areas:

Commercial due diligence

Our specialists can support you in undertaking buy-side or vendor commercial due diligence in a variety of transaction scenarios. By applying a robust analytical framework to review company performance and explore market conditions, we provide quantified views on the achievability of a business plan, both the upsides and the vulnerabilities.

Financial due diligence

PwC can help you ensure that the financial information of the target business reflects the current, sustainable run-rate of the business and can uncover any hidden risks or opportunities to help you maximize the value of the deal. By having us analyze and validate key valuation assumptions, you can focus attention on the factors in the business that will be critical to its future success.
