Like any new venture, setting up a private equity fund can be daunting.

In an increasingly competitive environment, how do you cut through the noise to find a strategic fit for your investment needs? And how do you generate enough quality leads to outperform your competitors and maintain deal flow? Both require a clear understanding of the types of investments in which your fund excels in, as well as extensive market knowledge and connections. 

As you move to the next stage of the deal process, how do you determine if the target company is a quality company and if the deal is priced correctly? Integrated due diligence, not limited to financial, tax, commercial, legal and HR, is necessary to help you identify growth drivers and risk factors that affect potential synergies and costs. Meanwhile, valuation, which can vary by industry, is also crucial to assess whether the price is right.

At PwC, we can help you maximise your value throughout the deal flow process with a team of strategy consultants and sector deals, tax and audit specialists.

Portfolio management

The first hundred days after closing can determine the success of merger and integration. How do managers turn around a newly acquired business and realise synergies? What should be the priority: cutting costs, optimising operations, motivating people or all the above? In divestitures and carve-outs, short-term solutions such as a transactional services agreement may be needed to keep operations going until a longer-term solution is in place. Meanwhile, the reality is that a range of performance improvement measures are needed simultaneously, requiring both attention to detail and expertise in areas such as financial reporting, tax regulation, IT and operations, human resources and internal controls.
