Creating and setting-up

A new joint venture or business combination requires specialized skills to assess the legal and tax environments and the capital market provisions in the local environment.

KPMG’s joint venture experts can support you from pre-deal strategy and partner identification through to implementation and governance to power up your joint venture or business combination. We have global resources and will help you build local relationships and understanding so that you have a full grasp of the strategic, financial, operational, and legal implications of creating and setting up a joint venture or alliance. We also help you understand the implications of the business combination on your entire business and ensure your long-term maintenance and exit strategies are an early consideration in the creation phase.

We assess and appraise potential partners, considering what is right for the business. We design the partnership, execute the deal and implement the new business arrangements.

Deliver, optimize or exit

Deliver, optimize or exit are stages of the life cycle that a joint venture may go through with significant challenges. To meet the objectives of a joint venture or alliance often requires close management of sensitive relationships (often across cultures and borders), in addition to the usual contractual and operating challenges of a business. Using a non-traditional, tailored approach to meet your needs, our globally experienced joint venture practitioners can help to preserve maximum value throughout the life cycle.
