Closing & post deal

Post-deal integration and operational improvement are keys to protecting and enhancing value after completing your investment. Many outbound investments fail to create the expected shareholder value because the strategy expressed in the business plan is not executed immediately post-deal.

Our post-deal services are designed to help you take immediate control of the business and avoid value leakage through poor control, failure to achieve synergies, and unanticipated integration costs. We work with management pre-deal to identify the actions that will establish control and deliver value post-deal, make the post-deal action plan (e.g., post-deal plan immediately after the closing and/or in a medium and long period) and support in the implementation.

Action plans may include:
  • Identify the 20% of actions that create 80% of value, then project manage activity around those priority actions
  • Transfer experienced staff to support management during the post-acquisition period
  • Stabilise the acquired business and secure the assets by establishing internal control systems
  • Establish self-funding, value-creating incentive plans that drive shareholder value.
Closing Audit as well as ongoing statutory audit and tax compliance assistance are critical to properly managing any investment.
  • Annual Audit is at the core of PwC’s capabilities and is crucial for managing risk, monitoring investments, and preparing for future exit.
  • Tax compliance management is an important area of focus for any business and ensuring ongoing tax compliance is critical for maintaining value in an investee company
