Transaction services

Building confidence for our clients

Mergers and acquisitions activity has been constrained over the last few years by uncertain economic conditions. While the outlook remains cautious, we are seeing an increasing return of confidence to boardrooms which is creating a significant appetite for transactions.

As the outlook becomes more optimistic, corporates in Australia and globally are closely looking at transactions once again to enhance competitive advantage and deliver shareholder value. Private equity houses have also raised significant capital and are prepared to invest in quality assets.

The challenging times have highlighted the need for focused diligence on transactions. We understand that our clients require a growing level of confidence in their decision-making. Deloitte’s extensive transaction experience, industry knowledge, technical skill combined with our advanced data analytics capabilities provides our clients with a critical advantage to execute key transactions.

The Transaction services team can assist in a wide variety of roles including:

  • Acquisition/pre-lending due diligence: Providing insightful views to address the key issues and risks within a potential target business or asset
  • Vendor due diligence: Providing objective information about the business to facilitate the buy-side due diligence process of potential purchasers. This provides vendors with greater control over the sale process and an opportunity to address any issues within the business
  • Vendor assist services: Providing a range of services to help prepare the business for sale providing greater control and certainty over price through the sale process
  • Sale and purchase agreements: Reviewing transaction documents for the accounting, financial and taxation implications. This includes completion mechanisms, definitions of key accounts, and warranties and indemnities, which have a direct impact on value
  • Capital market transactions (Investigating Accountant): Providing credibility to forecasts disclosed in public documents as part of the capital raising process by way of a review opinion
  • M&A tax & structuring advice: Providing due diligence and structuring advice to minimise transaction tax costs and the ongoing tax rate following the transaction through tax-efficient deal structuring.

In addition, the M&A Transactions group offers a host of other services to deliver maximum value through transactions, including commercial and operational due diligence, and post-merger integration services.
