In any transaction, the sale and purchase agreement (SPA) records the outcome of commercial and pricing negotiations. Buyers and sellers are becoming increasingly sophisticated in how they derive the maximum value possible through the negotiation and execution of the SPA.
Our dedicated SPA team provides expert support at all stages of a transaction – from pre-deal work through to post-completion support. In the pre-deal phase, the team identifies and articulates opportunities for increasing value which the client can then use to their advantage in their SPA negotiations. In the post-deal phase, the team advises clients how they can protect or generate value through the execution of the SPA’s completion mechanism.
Whatever your stage in the transaction cycle, we can provide expert advice to help you identify the best option for your situation.
Our SPA team provides practical, commercial advice to maximise value to clients in 80 SPAs every year on average in Australia, and over 300 SPAs each year globally. We operate across a range of industries and deal sizes, working closely with the core diligence team.
PwC is the primary firm in Australia with a specialist, dedicated team advising clients on the negotiation, drafting and execution of the financial aspects of SPAs. Our team is at the leading edge of current market developments in the constantly evolving SPA arena.
