KPMG was ranked as the leading mid-market provider of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) services for both the number of announced and completed deals in 2018, according to Refinitiv’s Mid-Market M&A Review (deals up to $500m), according to a press statement issued by KPMG Malta.

This is the third year in a row KPMG has earned this ranking by the organisation formerly known as Thomson Reuters Mid-Market M&A Review.

“We are thrilled that KPMG has once again been ranked as the leading mid-market provider of M&A services. This reaffirms the trust that the markets we serve have in the ability of our people to help them execute their growth strategies,” says Hermione Arciola, Director of Advisory Services at KPMG in Malta.

“We are pleased to see the network retain its leading position in M&A, an achievement which we seek to replicate locally via our constant interaction with business owners and senior management focusing on identifying opportunities for parties to get together and unlock value” commented David Pace, Partner, Head of Advisory at KPMG in Malta.

“Additionally our investment in a strong multi-disciplinary skill set means that we can journey together from the initial thinking through to reach-outs, negotiation, and integration/separation,” Mr Pace adds.

With more than 2,500 professionals in over 80 countries, KPMG’s Deal Advisory M&A network includes investment bankers with a global industry reach. Refinitiv rankings place KPMG as the leading mid-market advisor among the Big 4 and M&A boutique firms.

“As the market evolves, bringing strategic and holistic value to clients remains our top priority, whether that means building stronger sector networks or enhancing our leading data & analytic capabilities,” says Leif Zierz, KPMG’s Global Head of Deal Advisory.

“We are proud of our professionals who work shoulder-to-shoulder with clients from understanding the value story to helping achieve their strategic goals,” says Phil Isom, KPMG’s Global Head of M&A.
