Our key analyses include normalised earnings, normalised net working capital and net debt.

Our projects' characteristics and length vary greatly from a few week strategic planning stint with top management to a year-long hands-on implementation project support within client's organization, including global PwC collaboration.

The Deals Strategy team helps customers solve challenging strategic problems in M&A processes.

We analyze industries and clients, assess competitive landscape and value chains as well as identify market trends on behalf of private equity and corporate clients. We advise our customers in the evaluation of value creation opportunities and creation of a business plan. We tailor our services to fit the special characteristics of the corporate transaction and the client. Examples of situations where we can help:
