Our Transaction Services practice helps clients plan and complete business transactions.

Buying or selling a business or a major asset, undertaking a merger, or performing an IPO can all destroy value, unless planned and conducted correctly. Difficulties and risks compound when deals cover multiple jurisdictions. Critical concerns include:

 

  • Finding the right opportunities at the right price
  • Securing rock-solid finance
  • Obtaining stakeholder buy-in
  • Performing timely and robust due diligence
  • Aligning deals with strategic business objectives
  • Maintaining regulatory compliance
  • Identifying, quantifying, and realizing business synergies
  • Extracting value from business integration.

 

KPMG’s Transaction Services can advise on each of these many aspects.

Creating and Preserving Value

We are not deal principals; our aim is to create and preserve value for our clients.

We work with clients to assess and analyze proposed transactions, highlighting the value drivers, risks, and opportunities in the deal. We typically remain involved through the life cycle of the deal.

We help develop appropriate accounting, finance, and tax structures, as well as advise on post-deal and integration strategies.

A Trusted Team

Large or small, simple, or complex, we bring commercial knowledge, industry insight, robust analytical skills, and a deep accounting and technical heritage to all engagements.

Global Transaction Services teams operate out of the offices of around 60 member firms in KPMG International’s network. We are represented in developed markets, and we have a dynamic presence in the key emerging economies of Central Eastern Europe, Russia, Latin America, India, and elsewhere in Asia.

 

We foster an environment of progress, open communication, collaboration, integrity, and respect. For clients, we believe we are a valuable source of information, contacts, and business opportunity.
