Lead M&A Advisory

Lead M&A Advisory

Lead Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) advisory often involves advising companies and business owners at a critical point in their businesses lifecycle.

Lead M&A advisory involves advising companies at a critical point in their lifecycle.

KPMG is experienced in executing a variety of transaction styles such as:

  • Divestments: Sell side advisory, either of a business division or for the whole business (be it a minority or majority stake), generally to either raise capital to fund growth or provide a liquidity event for some / all shareholders
  • Buy-side acquisition advice: Either on a specific target, or providing origination ideas. Our team advises on all aspects of the transaction, from origination / target identification based on financial and strategic merits, through to approach, tactics, negotiation and documentation
  • Mergers and alternative transaction structures (such as joint venture agreements)
  • Management buy outs


On M&A assignments, our team often leverages the global KPMG network to deliver our clients connectivity to the right buyers and valuable commercial insights. KPMG has been a global leader in M&A and consistently been ranked either #1 or #2 for mid-market transactions (based on deal volume of completed transactions, for transactions <US$500m – source: Thompson)

KPMG has a longstanding history in New Zealand as a market leader in M&A assignments and has a trusted reputation in executing large, complex, cross-border transactions in a lead M&A advisory capacity.

A member of our Deal Advisory team would be delighted to further discuss our capabilities.
