Deal Strategy

Deal Strategy

Helping companies achieve above benchmark returns through strategic capital investment choices.

Advising clients on strategic investment decisions, divestments and partnerships.

M&A can accelerate growth by harnessing new ways of managing capital. While organic growth takes time and often requires development of new capabilities, M&A enables faster realization of growth through access to new markets, sales and distribution channels, new capabilities, or by simplifying and optimizing infrastructure, operations and costs. Refining corporate portfolios through disposals also creates value to re-orient and re-invest. 

Successful execution of M&A, however, is elusive – many mergers and acquisitions fail.  

KPMG’s Global Strategy Group (GSG) helps create value by challenging conventional thinking, bringing real industry insights and ‘investor-grade’ rigour, and providing on-the-ground support. The GSG approach focuses on the key deal questions, such as:

  • How will the target really enable new, sustainable growth?
  • How valuable and overlapping is the customer base? Are sales channels profitable?
  • In what direction could this deal take the new organization?
  • Are the targets, capabilities and infrastructure well understood?
  • Which opex and capex synergies are really achievable and by when?
  • How significant are integration challenges/costs likely to be?

GSG provides strategic and financial advice on raising capital, helps with decisions on where to invest, uncovers new opportunities, and provides rigorous M&A support pre, during and post deal:

  • Target identification and evaluation
  • M&A (buy-side, sell-side) due diligence and synergy cases
  • JV and partnership strategy
  • Refinancing and restructuring
  • Exit strategies, divestments and carve-outs
  • IPO support
  • Integration/separation planning and execution

The following case examples demonstrate GSG’s deal strategy approach, underpinned by the 9 Levers of Value framework and core principles.
