Private equity value creation services

EY teams help drive rapid change in private equity portfolio companies through strategy and transformation that delivers measurable results. That’s Value Creation Realized.

Amid economic and geopolitical uncertainty, increased competition for assets and rising stakeholder expectations, private equity firms are under more pressure than ever to deploy capital and create lasting value for their portfolio companies. Success depends on the ability to move efficiently, drive rapid strategic growth and meaningful operational change.

Effective transformational change requires novel approaches that harness people, innovation, and technology to drive strategic and operational excellence. Realizing this excellence requires an integrated approach that ensures ideas and implementation are forged together, each informing the other, at every instance, to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.

EY teams work with private equity firms on origination, diligence and the transaction to bring insights to the investment thesis. We design and actualize a value creation approach with portfolio companies that reimagines the most critical components of the business, from workforce to operations, technology to customer, delivering innovation across the value chain and providing a 360° perspective from design to execution. 

Whether it is a carve-out or integration of a business, we help uncover new unexpected paths to value using traditional levers as well as new ones. Whether your investment thesis is built around revenue growth, cost reduction, working capital, ESG, technology or digital transformation, we’ll leverage our deep sector insights to help improve performance across all functional areas of the business and deliver measurable results. In situations of (dis)stress, we help with preserving and recovering value through turnaround and restructuring.

EY teams will meet you wherever you are in your value creation journey, from strategy that works in the real world through to the practical implementation that captures value in accelerated time scales – what we call “value creation realized.”
