Strategic profitability insights

Cut to the heart of financial matters. Transform financial due diligence. Assess true deal value.

If you’re looking at potential acquisition or transaction, you have limited time to discern its real strength and weaknesses. But if your transaction due diligence stops short, you may not know the true value of a deal until after it’s done.

KPMG’s Strategic Profitability Insights (SPI) platform helps extract key financial data that’s buried deep – data that may not be accessible by any other means, but may reveal the insights both buyers and sellers need to evaluate a deal opportunity. By collecting, processing and analyzing raw data collected from a target, our profitability tools help us uncover those insights faster and more accurately and give transaction due diligence a boost. With a strong profitability assessment, when the clock starts ticking on your next transaction, you’ll be more informed about what you’re getting.
