Date3 August 2021

Time: 11.00 am –12.30 pm

Format: Webinar

Language: Ukrainian / Russian


The demand for IT companies to provide new services is constantly accelerating, with this rapid pace of development and modernisation only increasing after a year that saw clients demand creative solutions to the obstacles of remote work. Investing in cutting edge IT projects, especially those in Ukraine, has never been more popular. However, before investors decide whether a company is suitable for investment, they need to examine all aspects of said company’s operations to fully understand all the factors that could affect future development.

To help IT companies prepare for potential investment scenarios, KPMG is delivering a webinar where everyone can learn the process of preparing for intense investor scrutiny and how to address any potential concerns.

Issues to be discussed

  • What issues need to be addressed: raising investments, IPO, and capitalising an IT business
  • Preparing your IT company’s financial statements for investors: what are investors’ expectations and how to meet them
  • Due diligence and how you can facilitate accurate insights
  • What needs to be done in advance of completing the transaction
  • M&A: what it means for your company and how can all parties benefit
  • The impact of M&A deals on a business’ value
  • Is it worth it for an IT business to become a public company?
