KPMG has designed a rapid diagnostic process to help portfolio companies quickly identify potential near-term cash-generation, EBITDA, and other performance improvements.

Our no-cost, holistic diagnostic of a company’s financial statements, processes, and operational data combines proven KPMG tools and technology with customized support from senior KPMG subject matter professionals whose expertise spans a range of disciplines and industries. 

Our light-touch process

The assessment explores a variety of financial, operational, and other data to help target potential performance improvement initiatives focused on rapid value creation.

Through our initial diagnostic exercise, which is a light-touch process on the organization’s part, we identify opportunities across multiple areas of the company and suggest targeted actions for achieving cash-generation, EBITDA, and other performance improvements. Then, at your organization’s discretion, our experts can further guide you through the execution of select initiatives focused on value creation opportunities that have been identified.
