Summary

KPMG provides a very broad mergers and acquisitions (M&A) services portfolio, which is being brought to market through a consistent go-to-market and delivery approach. The provider enables its consultants through its proprietary global M&A methodology and its well-defined process for capturing and cultivating M&A-related knowledge. Clients particularly value KPMG's strong due-diligence and transactions services. However, since KPMG is primarily driving its M&A business through its transactions services, it is looking into new growth opportunities for increasing the share of its services related to predeal and post-merger integration (PMI). In this context, KPMG has an opportunity to design new services around M&A performance management — currently a white space in the market — by tying together its expertise across technology, performance, and transactions. Such an offering would differentiate its position in the M&A services arena and help it become a more strategic partner along the M&A value chain.
