KPMG LLP acquires Optimum Solutions Group, LLC


Financial Overview:


Transaction Value: N/A                   Transaction Structure: N/A


MW Highlights

  • Optimum is a fit for KPMG's growth strategy and complements other KPMG investments in the business transformation space, including KPMG's recent acquisition of EquaTerra in February.
  • Optimum's focus on Oracle's latest Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM) product suite, a key set of applications in Oracle's product strategy, allows KPMG to take advantage of the current developments in the HCM space.
  • Similarly, the Big 4 accounting firms are increasingly stepping up to pursue acquisitions that allow them to enhance their practices in the management and IT consulting space as they face both domestic and international competitors. Optimum represents KPMG's second acquisition in the space this year, while Ernst & Young has completed ten.
  • Martin Wolf expects more deals to occur in the IT consulting space as the competition heats up from the need for more expertise, talent and customers.
