In fact, KPMG LLP was the first of the Big Four firms to organize itself along the same industry lines as clients.

Strategic profitability insights

Cut to the heart of financial matters. Transform financial due diligence. Assess true deal value.

If you’re looking at potential acquisition or transaction, you have limited time to discern its real strength and weaknesses. But if your transaction due diligence stops short, you may not know the true value of a deal until after it’s done.

The KPMG Strategic Profitability Insights (SPI) platform helps extract key financial data that’s buried deep – data that may not be accessible by any other means, but may reveal the insights both buyers and sellers need to evaluate a deal opportunity. By collecting, processing and analyzing raw data collected from a target, our profitability tools help us uncover those insights faster and more accurately and give transaction due diligence a boost. With a strong profitability assessment, when the clock starts ticking on your next transaction, you’ll be more informed about what you’re getting. 

When does SPI comes into play?


Buy Side

  • Evaluate a target’s investment thesis
  • Identify and quantify transaction value
  • Assess risk through risk data aggregation


Sell Side

  • Identify unique business attributes, such as trends, clients, geographies and product portfolios
  • Determine how best to market the company to different buying groups, such as strategic or financial buyers


Strategic Planning

  • Uncover the causes of business fluctuations
  • Leverage data analytics to build a strategy

SPI gets past the obvious questions.
