Finance Excellence in Deals

Creating value throughout the deal process

Value creation must be a key driver for any acquisitions, sale of the company or divestitures. An integration or separation process is often complex and challenging for organisations. The finance function is critical in this process and greatly impacts the success of the transaction. The finance function has access to pivotal data, has insights into company performance and often coordinates projects and processes. Optimising the operational model, synergy tracking, management reporting, working capital management and cash flow forecasting are key features to successfully complete the deal process. Frequently, the opportunities lie within the finance function; Finance Excellence in Deals.
