Deal Advisory is a fast paced area of our advisory business. Continually enhancing value for our clients across the deal and economic cycle, our specialists guide them through the entire process – from the initial concept of buying a business, to turning their business around in times of difficulty through selling, restructuring or partnering. Our wealth of experience across the deal cycle gives us access to what’s happening in the heart of key sectors, and enables you to learn from the very best.

In Deal Advisory, we apply deep technical knowledge and industry experience to a broad mix of complex and challenging transaction and business issues. We work with a range of clients including private companies, the public sector, private equity houses, leading financial institutions and individuals and enhance value in six broad ways: 

  1. Buy: We support clients across the critical stages of an acquisition, from Deal strategy through to value realization.
  2. Sell: We help clients maximize shareholder value through active portfolio management and successful divestments of non-core activities or of entire businesses or shareholding in businesses.
  3. Partner: We advise clients in creating and setting up successful new joint ventures or alliances and support clients as a true partner through the life cycle of a joint venture or alliance, giving them confidence from creation to exit.
  4. Fix: We enable turnaround by helping clients identify strategic, operational and financial opportunities to stabilize under-performance and position for sustainable stakeholder value. Deal Advisory assists with Financial Restructuring by focusing on successfully addressing the intense challenges of financial restructuring and debt refinancing to support improvement in company performance and sustainable growth.
  5. Fund: We take a strategic approach to capital structuring transactions, backed by effective communications with shareholders, lenders and other relevant parties and designed to enhance value.
  6. Grow: Growth is a key pillar for every organisation’s strategy. We assist our clients on every aspect of their growth agenda- market growth to operational improvements.
