Integration & Separation Advisory services help at every stage in the transaction process.
Our integration and separation service capabilities focus on the preservation and delivery of value through the completion of a transaction and beyond. We apply a framework that considers operational insights, the imperative of control and evaluation of culture and personnel.
We work with clients at different stages of the transaction lifecycle to help ensure deal objectives and value targets are met in a timely manner, with minimal disruption to business. Our Australian Integration team is part of a global KPMG merger integration team that has supported over 500 integrations. Our approach is tailored to the requirements of each client and integration, with an emphasis on practical and tangible financial and operational outcomes.
We bridge the advisory relationship from pre-deal to post-deal execution, spanning from the identification and quantification of value in the transaction, through to design and mobilisation of the integration program, and management of execution in the post-completion period. We assist with all integration workstreams including finance, IT, HR, procurement, supply chain, sales, etc. We also help with:

In addition we can help with:
