Corporate value advisory

Measuring and realising value from acquisitions, restructuring and investments

All business decisions impact value. You may be considering a transaction, transferring intellectual property, insuring your assets, engaged in a value dispute or considering the value impact of a new project or strategy. How will these decisions affect value?

We collaborate with our clients to measure, evaluate and advise to establish the true value of assets, capital expenditure, acquisitions and investments.

Do you know the value impact?

All business decisions impact value, but do you know by how much? We apply a value lens to important decisions to bring a clearer focus on:

  • Short term actions versus long term sustainable value creation
  • Creating alignment between shareholders and stakeholders
  • Linking tactical financial decisions back to strategic objectives
  • The impact of disruption to existing business models
  • Making choices between competing demands for capital investment
  • Monitoring the value performance of the business portfolio including key initiatives and major projects
  • Communicating how management plans will deliver value, in response to activist campaigns

Measuring value

PwC’s valuations team provide independent, objective, expert valuation advice including:

  • valuations for transactions, corporate tax, capital raising, internal share markets
  • valuations for public market transactions (independent expert reports)

Deal evaluation

Executing a successful transaction is no mean feat. Deals often fail to achieve their original financial or strategic objectives and many companies are not prepared for the speed and intensity of the deal process.

We help businesses identify, quantify and deliver the full value of the deal with greater speed, insight and confidence.

Our valuation professionals help improve the odds of success by increasing the level of diligence, including:

  • independent valuation advice
  • value driver and assumption analysis
  • benchmarking of value relative to other transactions
  • earnings per share (EPS) and equity internal rate of return (IRR) impact
  • model integrity assessment.
