We offer the support you need to achieve your objectives across the following areas:
Capital allocation services
Capital allocation is the assessment, planning, review and prioritization of the use of financial resources across an organization. Making the right capital allocation decisions is essential to maintaining your company’s long-term growth and increasing shareholder returns.
The strategic alternatives framework is designed to help you identify, quantify and compare the impact of various alternatives to create long-term stakeholder value. EY data-driven framework can analyze important decisions from a financial, operational and tax perspective.
A strategic portfolio analysis is a systematic and continuous approach to evaluating the performance of a set of businesses such that value delivery can be achieved and improved through changing strategic, operational and market dynamics.
Forecasting and scenario planning
EY forecasting and scenario planning services leverage advanced modeling and analytical techniques to predict and evaluate the financial impact of operational and strategic options. Amid increasingly volatile business environments, your company must learn to adapt processes and harness technology to efficiently generate accurate forecasts.
Balance sheet optimization
For large-scale infrastructure projects and programs, we advise both public and private sector organizations on issues related to:
- Public-private partnerships (PPP)
Our wide range of advisory services includes support from the earliest stages of analysis, from project evaluation to procurement, financial close, construction and operations. We can assist our clients in devising and comparing financial plans and delivery approaches for projects that involve public, federal or private financing, project revenues and/or grants — and provide support to our clients in their implementation of those plans.
We can provide you with an independent opinion as to whether the price to be paid or received in a transaction is fair from a financial point of view. In doing so, EY professionals can help you address the following important questions:
- Will the transaction create or destroy shareholder value?
- What is the value of the target assets or equity interests?
- How does non-cash consideration such as equity, seller notes, earnouts, options and other complex financial instruments affect the transaction value?
- How do risks, synergies and other growth opportunities impact the transaction economics?
- Is the transaction accretive or dilutive?
- How do the transaction structure, tax attributes and contingencies impact deal value?
