Company integration and separation

Optimal planning for carve-outs and M&A integration projects

The smooth separation of parts of your business and the successful integration of businesses in the course of day-to-day operations pose a particular organisational challenge. Decision-makers are confronted with many questions. How can companies and other organisations focus on their core business, leverage synergies and achieve profitable growth? How do you separate from  and coordinate the operational separation? Is it necessary to look at the IT architecture at all?

How do you avoid losing time and value in transactions? Which financial value levers can be identified and utilised after an acquisition? Given the numerous changes and challenges in the business world – for example in legaltechnological and tax structuring matters – it is increasingly difficult to plan for transaction value creation.

More than just value creation. “Soft” success factors make the difference

Our experienced deals team will assist you in understanding complex transaction processes and structures. Working with you, our experts identify financial value creation potential, develop sustainable growth strategies and support you in implementing them. We deliberately focus not only on topics along the value chain, but also on “soft” success factors such as change management and corporate culture. As a PwC client, you benefit from our industry-specific know-how and our cross-border network. In company acquisitions or disposals, we always keep your targets in mind – from identifying the right transaction target, through due diligence, to post-merger integration or carve-outs. Successful IT integration and IT carve-outs are particular challenges due to the high level of complexity. We keep an eye on technological trends and always act with the utmost care. We also design this complex process jointly with you. What's more, we assist you in implementing the business model you envisage as quickly as possible. You can count on us. Our clients value this, which is why we are one of the world’s leading transaction advisers.
