Mergers and acquisitions transactions typically raise complex financial, regulatory and operational issues.

Price remains a critical factor for acquirers and sellers, but dozens of other matters must be managed effectively to complete the deal. This is where KPMG can help.

How we can help

KPMG’s Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) practice helps corporations and private equity clients identify and set up transactions and then take them to successful completion. Our services include assisting with:

  • identifying businesses to be acquired or sold
  • locating buyers or sellers
  • planning acquisitions, takeovers, mergers and divestments
  • providing advice on transaction terms and pricing
  • structuring transactions
  • arranging financing (debt and equity)
  • advising on specific accounting, tax and structuring issues
  • negotiating finance, prices, terms and conditions
  • organising takeover offences/defences for public companies

Our M&A advisers are skilled, experienced professionals. They offer advice that is clear, objective and practical. They draw on the support of KPMG's dedicated industry groups.

Importantly, KPMG never takes a debt or equity position in any deal on which it advises, underwriting our reputation for objectivity and impartiality.

Our international Mergers & Acquisitions network gives KPMG a presence in all of the world's main commercial and financial centres. It is a presence that makes a big difference in accessing vital market intelligence and getting the deal done.
