Value Creation Services

Think boldly, then deliver

Building value is at the heart of every organisation. Our single-minded goal is to uncover value, implement sustainable performance improvement strategies and support clients navigate their complex programmes. 

Businesses who are dynamic, move quickly, and who can see the full potential in an opportunity are successful.

We understand that. Working across deals of all shapes and sizes, we navigate commercial opportunities, operational issues, accelerate value execution and identify a more profitable future for years to come.

Away from the deal, our proven tools and techniques for managing major transformation programmes and profitability improvement can ramp up value delivery in an ever more competitive environment.

Digital is increasingly becoming a core element to creating sustainable value. We help you identify and quantify the impact of digital initiatives from a commercial perspective and build an integrated plan to deliver business and brand value.

Our heritage of working with the largest Sovereign Wealth Funds, State Owned Enterprises and Family Offices in the region demonstrates our breadth of experience and allows us to bring a unique local focus.  This, combined with Deloitte's unparalleled depth in sectoral insight and implementation, allows us to see what others miss.

Whether organic or inorganic. Offensive or defensive. Our global network of experts deliver tangible benefits across the entire value chain. In a truly transformational transaction or when a step- change is demanded, we look at the journey as a broad canvas in terms of "where can we go and what could we be?"


FA Major Programmes

We work with CEOs, CFOs and CTOs to setup and deliver complex transformation programmes with focus on unlocking value and delivering benefits to shareholders.

Our agile approach is designed to enable rapid control over programme outcomes. Working hand in hand with our clients throughout their transformation journey from ideation to delivery and value realisation.

With our transactions background, we understand how to navigate complex programmes working with the relevant stakeholders such as regulators, government agencies, lawyers and financial advisors.

Commercial Advisory

We support C-suites of multinational and local corporations and private equity firms in their inorganic and organic growth initiatives across industries and geographies.

We assist companies in reviewing, developing and improving business plans as part of transactions, investments and strategic reviews of business units.

We unlock valuable industry insights to validate investment thesis on organic growth initiatives and identify acquisition targets’ true value and potential performance at transaction settings.

We also support Government institutions during their decision making on commercialisation of their strategic assets.

Integration and Separation

We support leadership teams in delivering their organisation’s M&A strategy, growth via acquisition to unlock integration synergies or by carving-out a division to capitalise on market opportunities and help to refocus on core capabilities.

Our team of experienced integration and separation professionals bring broad perspectives from multiple deals to accelerate value creation.

We apply a proven methodology and “playbook” to orchestrate all workstreams and advisors. We deploy tailored tools and databases (e.g. M&A Central, Global Synergy Benchmarking Database) as needed.

Performance Improvement

We provide you with hands-on support and expertise to deliver rapid operational and financial performance improvements by applying a financial-investor lens to your business. Our dedicated team has an unmatched depth and breadth of industry experience and situational expertise and leverages proven accelerators to support clients in any industry. Deploying skills ranging from pricing optimisation, cost rationalisation through to review/ redesign of organisational and digital capabiliites, we target the improvements that will have the biggest impact on your bottom line in the shortest period of time.
