Pace of change and deep-seated uncertainty blowing across global markets, it should come as no surprise that Valuation Matters.

In our role as financial advisor, KPMG member firms work on equity and debt transactions undertaken in the world’s key markets for clients operating in every sector.

 

  • We advise buyers, sellers, borrowers, lenders and financial investors in:
  • equity capital raising: public offerings, placements
  • debt capital raising: corporate, sovereign, project and structured finance
  • capital restructuring and securitizations
  • acquisitions, mergers, takeovers, buy-outs
  • divestitures and demergers
  • joint ventures and transaction alliances.

 

Our advice takes many forms: from analyzing strategic options, to assessing value, to structuring the deal, to designing mechanisms for presenting the deal to the marketplace, to managing the transaction process, to negotiating and securing the optimal terms for a successful closing. We also seek to back our professional judgment in furnishing fairness opinions and other assurance to comfort investors and regulators.

 

Our professionals’ advice is supported by:

 

  • a true understanding of the issues and challenges faced by our firms’ clients
  • global execution capability
  • connectivity with the financial markets
  • deep sector knowledge
  • negotiation prowess.

 

Our respected Corporate Finance team comprises more than 2,300 professionals — including former investment bankers and senior government officials, along with lawyers, economists, business analysts and accountants — working collaboratively from 105 offices in 60 countries across the globe.

 

Together, our firms’ Corporate Financiers have advised on or arranged critical and sensitive equity and debt transactions valued in the multi billions in every sector for some of the world’s largest corporations, financial institutions and governments.

 

KPMG firms are paid by you to advocate on your behalf and your behalf only: our sole interest, in this particular regard, is helping you to achieve your objectives. Our advice is not tainted by a need to sell specific products or pre packaged solutions. Because KPMG firms are not dealers in securities or arrangers of other financial transactions, our Corporate Financiers can remain indifferent to which type, if any, you choose to meet your goals. We endeavour to ensure that our advice to you is free from client or motivational conflicts. We will always seek to develop a long term relationship with you to help meet your needs beyond the immediate transaction.

 

From raising or restructuring capital, to buying or selling a business, to making strategic and policy decisions based on value, KPMG firms will see things from your perspective, advocate for your position, challenge conventional wisdom and employ creativity and skill in devising and executing a favorable solution. One of our key measures of success is the achievement of your goals.
