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.
