IT/Operations due diligence

Our approach


PwC has harmonized the skills, experience, and methodologies of our IT, finance, and operations consulting practice with our deep bench of deal-focused professionals to provide an integrated due diligence offering. We work with our clients to focus the scope of our diligence efforts on high-impact areas that drive deal value and seek to minimize risk. Our professionals provide both the industry and functional depth necessary to make recommendations that are relevant, impactful, and feasible.

How we help


Our solutions focus on the operational aspects of a business, uncovering both the risks and opportunities inherent in a deal. These risk and opportunities may include: deferred investments in systems and infrastructure, unrealistic improvement programs, cost savings opportunities, and working capital improvements that result from better management of accounts receivable, accounts payable, and inventory. In addition, our teams work with clients involved in carve-outs, helping them gain comfort with stand-alone costs, Transition Service Agreements, or post-deal integration synergy estimates.
