In M&A transactions, a Transition Service Agreement (TSA) allows the seller to perform specific services on behalf of the buyer to maintain business continuity while the buyer prepares to integrate and operate the acquired business.

But TSAs create a burden to sellers and are expensive to buyers, lasting anywhere from 6-24 months, meaning that both buyers and sellers (not to mention targets) spend an inordinate amount of time and money on post-close transition before they can get back to business-as-usual.

In the paper below, we explain how we, at KPMG Denmark, can help clients accelerate the process—from due diligence, initial planning, Day 1 readiness, exit planning to exit and completion—to as little as 2-3 months after closing, allowing companies to renew their focus on their core business.
