Transaction Services

KPMG’s Transaction Services team helps client organisations assess, plan and manage major transactions.

KPMG’s Transaction Services team helps clients assess, plan and manage major transactions.

Even in challenging economic times, business leaders need to consider major transactions as a means of renewing and transforming their enterprises.

Strategic transactions – acquisitions, divestments, IPOs, privatisations, mergers and alliances, debt and equity deals – can enhance competitive advantage and shareholder value.

In these transactions, the margins for error are thin and lenders and investors are unforgiving of poorly thought out and executed deals.

High quality, professional advice assists companies to complete successful transactions that result from clear-eyed analysis, strategic focus and disciplined execution. This is where KPMG can make a difference.

KPMG's Transaction Services practice offers financial due diligence and related services to help clients assess, plan and manage acquisitions, mergers, divestments and initial and secondary debt and equity offerings.
