Buy Outs 

KPMG member firms are among the leaders in the world of private equity. Our approach to the market place enable our professionals to have a deep understanding of private equity institutions. This allows us to provide truly independent advice on buy outs. We provide objective and unbiased counsel on buy outs and we do this from the perspective of our firms' clients whether it is the management team, private equity house or exiting vendor.

KPMG’s Corporate Financiers are fluent and insightful across the buy out process, including:


  • transaction feasibility
  • equity capital raising
  • debt capital raising
  • deal structuring
  • pricing
  • negotiating with vendors, finance providers and management teams
  • effective project management to successful closing.


We are active in the private equity marketplace on a daily basis through our network of member firms and therefore have a breadth of access to financial institutions, their thought processes and their ways of working. This enables us to advise our firms’ clients with the benefit of significant tradecraft and market knowledge.


Our involvement in buyout processes ranges from assisting management teams in business planning, to assessing key issues to be addressed in a buyout, to recommending equity and debt partners for a management team, through to advice on deal tactics and negotiations.


Private equity transactions can be complex, with a number of moving parts. Our advice helps to ensure that the myriad of issues that are peculiar to a private equity transaction can be dealt with at the right time to deliver a successful completion.


We are hands on advisers and bring a wealth of experience to bear for the benefit of our firms’ clients. Our extensive knowledge of private equity drivers, approaches and structures, in both sell and buy side situations means that we have delivered value time and time again for our clients, whatever their involvement with private equity.


Our transaction focus is partly on the middle market — partly in advising management teams in larger buyouts. In short, we are intimately familiar with the private equity market and have worked closely with a range of global private equity firms. This contact network and breadth of experience ensures that our member firms’ clients receive advice that is independent, well rounded, thoroughly commercial and informed.
