Private equity value creation services



What EY private equity value creation services can do for you

With high valuations, record levels of dry powder and enhanced competition, PE firms increasingly must be able to identify and deliver operational improvements to achieve targeted returns.

We prioritize our involvement to focus on situations we know best: complex carve-outs, functional transformations and instances of stress/distress. Whatever the situation, we connect learnings from our Strategy and Transactions when delivering the value case.

We use embedded data and analytics at each stage of the process to accelerate our analysis, to help you set in motion the right strategy, improve operating performance, enable growth, and optimize the exit. Our integrated teams focus to keep management on side without compromising speed or sacrificing the size of the prize.

What questions we can answer for you?
  • From origination to exit, how much value can be unlocked?
  • How do you use analytics to uncover hidden value enhancement opportunities?
  • How can you translate diligence insights into viable transformation plans?
  • How do you optimize the pace and quantum of delivery while keeping management and sponsors on side?
