Markets, industries and business models are changing rapidly.
Companies and organisations that want to continue their success must consistently question and reinvent their business models. Buying and selling entire companies or individual business areas are important elements of strategic development. However, executing and financing transactions are activities that are becoming increasingly complex but lead to change – and generate questions that are increasingly difficult to answer. That’s why a comprehensive assessment of the relevant parameters is essential to a successful transaction.
Whether you’re focusing on restructuring, financing, stock market flotation, international tax law, integrating acquisitions or separating business areas: It’s always vitally important to minimise the risks of planned transactions – and optimise the benefits. From strategic analysis through to due diligence, closing or post-deal integration, the right partner can provide the advice you need to succeed every step of the process.
From the initial idea and initiation of a deal through to closing and integration – we help you drive your growth and secure your future.
From the first strategic discussions through to due diligence, closing and post-deal integration: The international PwC network offers expert advice for every element of the transaction process. Together, we will make your deal a success – even in times of great change.
Identifying attractive targets and closing transactions: We support you in identifying, evaluating, structuring and coordinating new targets and processes for transactions. Sustainability (ESG) in particular plays a significant role here.
Identify and take advantage of divestment opportunities: We help you create value for your company and minimise risks through vigorous preparation – from analysing regulatory requirements through the compilation of all relevant financial and tax information to the integration of ESG value drivers.
Strategic implementation of acquisitions: Strategically coordinated acquisitions can create sustainable added value for your company. We show you opportunities – also with regard to ESG criteria, which can become a decisive value driver – and support you in taking advantage of them effectively. We also assess all tax-related or financing-related aspects of your planned acquisition, and provide you with clarity about the impact on your balance sheet and KPIs.
Setting up controlled IPO processes: We can answer any structural, operational or regulatory questions you may have, and work with you to develop an attractive equity story for a successful stock market flotation.
A target-oriented approach to complex transactions: We accompany you from your first strategic considerations through to project management and successful operational implementation of your carve-out project.
Whether it’s acquisitions, carve-outs of individual business areas through to restructuring, financing, stock market flotation, international tax law or integrations: It’s always vitally important to minimise the risks of planned transactions – and maximise the opportunities.

“The heat is on”, warns the Chief Risk Officers Forum urgently in its position paper. The Forum estimates that the climate emergency could lead up to USD 550 trillion in losses around the globe. But rising global temperatures are not the only existential financial threat faced by companies. Other ecological and social risks can also jeopardise a company's future.
