Exploring strategic alternatives from divesting to entering the capital market is challenging; however, Harmony can provide that level of comfort in any transactional endeavor your organization is contemplating or executing on.
With the power to connect directly to data where it is stored, Harmony is the right solution to meet your reporting needs. Connections into Harmony can be made from a variety of sources, including but not limited to KPMG Aggregation and Reporting Tool (KART), ERP systems, financial consolidation platforms, data warehouses, customer relationship management (CRM) systems, and other tabular data types. Having the ability to transform your reporting process and integrate files, deliver formatted data efficiently and consistently, and automate to manage data and tasks for your team(s) are just a few highlighted capabilities of Harmony.
Harmony can be leveraged for many transaction types, including:
IPOs: Companies preparing for an initial public offering will need audit-ready, separate financial statements, a robust Management Discussion and Analysis (MD&A), and other comprehensive reports. Timing is of the essence. Harmony can help build and maintain the necessary statements and reports for any stage of an IPO in an efficient manner, providing the level of detail necessary to facilitate a smooth audit process.
Mergers, Acquisitions, and Divestitures: Harmony can help generate both separate and combined financial statements and other outputs necessary for reporting before or after transactions, while also generating separate and standalone reports and outputs for pre-deal and post-deal comparative purposes. Whatever avenue you are exploring, Harmony gives you the information needed to make the best decision for your organization.
Other types of transactions, including restructuring: Harmony allows users to experiment with various “what if” scenarios by pulling in different data sources and seeing how other variable elements of your business change or transaction can impact the overall outcome. Needing both audit-ready financial statements and pro-forma financial statements? Harmony lets you leverage the same data set to create various reports.
