ALM Intelligence recognizes PwC’s Deals Practice as having end-to-end capabilities, advanced analytics and a robust technology offering.
 
PwC was announced as a leader in Transactions – Acquisitions Consulting by ALM Intelligence. ALM assesses consulting firms in defined markets on the basis of their breadth and depth of service capabilities and momentum.
 
In the report, a “leader” is defined as being at the top of the market in terms of capabilities to create client impact through their depth of expertise and ability to deploy it across a range of engagement models. Leaders are unique in their ability to independently execute a broad array of projects across the full spectrum of client contexts. They range from providers in the top quintile in terms of depth of capability for low-complexity engagement models to those that combine above average depth of capability with the ability to deploy it across high-complexity engagement models.
 
On PwC’s leadership qualities, Tomek Jankowski Senior Analyst, Management Consulting Research at ALM and author of the report stated, “PwC’s Deals advisory practice is one of the firm’s legacy practice areas and a traditional area of strength for the firm. The firm has robust end-to-end capabilities in the execution and integration deal phases.” He continues to say, “PwC has put deep thought into the due diligence and valuation portions of the deal process and has created an up-front, fully holistic approach to this part of the process, both to help clients better understand their options as well as avoid issues later. He also noted that “PwC has bolstered the human capital element in its offering, focusing on managing cultural change for post-deal success.”
