Transparency for clear transaction decisions

In the initial phase of a company acquisition, it is important for every potential buyer to be able to estimate the effects on the balance sheet and future profitability. This enables a profound determination and analysis of the purchase price based on a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the transaction and its effects Next to the challenge posed by the short timeframe when conducting a Pre-Deal PPA, data availability plays a central role in creating a meaningful analysis.

With the KPMG Pre-Deal PPA Solution, possible accounting effects of an acquisition are calculated and visualized in just a few steps. This enables an immediate assessment of the effects of the company acquisition

In order to calculate intangible and tangible assets and liabilities, the online solution uses a KPMG database with relevant evaluation parameters from over 40 industries. The tool thus delivers a valid assessment without the need for time-consuming research into assessment assumptions, s.a.  economic or tax useful lives. In addition, your own assumptions can easily be integrated into the calculation and checked for plausibility.
