KPMG was ranked as the leading mid-market provider of M&A services for both the number of announced and completed deals in 2016, according to Thomson Reuters’ Mid-Market M&A Review (deals up to USD $500M).
“M&A remains crucial for companies seeking to capture new opportunities and extract value in a market that is rapidly changing,” commented Leif Zierz, KPMG’s Global Head of Deal Advisory. “In this new environment, KPMG’s position in the league tables is market recognition of our member firms’ ability to combine deep sector knowledge, breadth of services and an integrated global network into a holistic offering that continuously delivers value for our clients.”
Thomson Reuters Mid-Market M&A Review shows KPMG leading the M&A field in 2016 for Undisclosed Values & Values up to USD $500M, with 432 deals. KPMG also came in first place in the European Involvement Mid-Market Rankings with 321 deals, and Eastern Europe Involvement Mid-Market Rankings with 33 deals.
Bloomberg M&A Advisory League Tables shows KPMG leading in the Global Mid-Market (up to USD $50M) with 245 deals and USD $1.2B in deal value. For the Global Private Equity Mid-Market (up to USD $50M), KPMG leads with 81 deals and USD $378M in deal value. Global League Tables are based upon announced total values.
“We are proud of our professionals who work with our clients at deal speed whether cross-border or cross-sector,” said Phil Isom, KPMG’s Global Head of M&A. “The breadth of our network allows us to provide a comprehensive suite of services – from business case development and integrated business diligence through to 'Day One' execution and integration.”
With more than 2,500 professionals in 67 countries, KPMG’s Deal Advisory M&A network includes more investment bankers than any other global investment banking network, covering the largest number of countries, with global industry reach. Thomson Reuters and Bloomberg’s rankings place KPMG as the leading mid-market advisor among the Big 4 and M&A boutique firms.
