Understanding deal readiness of private German target companies early in the deal life cycle has proven to be a critical success factor for U.S. public and non-public acquirers in order to properly plan out the finance integration measures to ensure the target can meet post-close financial reporting deadlines.
During this webcast, professionals from KPMG U.S. and KPMG Germany will share their point of view on the following:
- What are the statutory financial reporting and audit requirements in Germany?
- What are the key activities that acquirers can do pre-signing /-closing to understand the target’s deal readiness and to plan for integrating the target into the new parent reporting environment?
- What areas of support do we see most target companies require in order to meet post-close parent reporting requirements?
- How does the German Internal Controls environment differ from SOX and what are the common harmonization needs?
