Actionable insights. Advanced analytics. Integrated capabilities.
Better investment decisions. Value delivered.
In the last few years, deal landscapes have been changing. Offensive and aggressive bid competition are pushing for shorter and deeper diligence. In the new reality, it will be harder than ever to separate clear signals on performance from noise. Some companies will look entirely different, having restructured to survive economic disruption.
Investors who look beyond traditional commercial and financial diligence methods are likely to make the best capital allocation decisions. And sellers who understand how they can improve performance and build a stronger equity story will achieve the best returns. We have seen increasing differentiation in returns between Private Equity (PE) funds using typical diligence and what best-in-class PE funds earn. We expect value creation to put even more distance between top performers and the "rest of the pack”.
Our Deal Strategy and Value Creation team deploys a powerful combination of hypothesis-led thinking with advanced data analytics. Together with our deep sector knowledge and functional expertise, this enables us to provide you with a unique set of insights around a deal. It means we can rapidly unlock revenue, cost, cash and capital value, and demonstrate clear EBITDA/EV impact.
We can help you understand the risks and upside opportunities of a deal and understand where enterprise value can be improved. Ahead of a divestment, we can help you build a compelling plan for change, backed by data. We provide you with end-to-end delivery – from identifying where potential lies to implementing the programmes to release it.
We support our clients identify value opportunities at all stages of the deal, from initial outside-in assessments, through diagnostics within portfolio companies, to driving value on exit.
