Creating value in private equity - The Shard

In today’s highly competitive market, spotting value creation opportunities, as well as understanding pre-acquisition risk, is key to driving value on completion and under ownership. Our innovative, technology led approach to the diligence of prospects utilised the power or proprietary benchmarks and functional expertise to rapidly provide a view on operational improvements and the actions required to deliver them.

How does it work? Identify value creation opportunities over three days:

  1. Discover and quantify key areas of opportunity in one place
  2. Adjust assumptions and perform sensitivity analysis in real time
  3. Early view on key “hot spot” areas worthy of further detailed investigation

Going beyond financial performance from the onset, KPMG’s 9 Levers of Value frameworks helps provide greater clarity into a company’s ability to generate revenue and impact costs. Our ‘hot spot’ analysis triggers a subsequent, detailed operational investigation of key identified areas to further refine the opportunity.

Our Creating value in private equity report explores ways in which organisations can identify and further refine value creation opportunities.
