Complementing the wide array of our other transaction advisory services, DCS offers expert corporate structuring advisory services. These services are most commonly required and may be applied to our PPP/P3, project financing and M&A and privatization transaction advisory services. Corporate finance advisory services entail the coordinated expertise in tax, legal (corporate and regulatory) and commercial aspects. Whether our advisory mandate is on the "sell side" or one the "buy side", whether our client is a public sector enterprise or a private sector company or investor, devising the most optimal and efficient corporate structure that is appropriate for the transaction at hand is an essential consideration for the success of our client and the transaction.
Corporate structuring advisory services typically entail the coordinated analysis of various corporate entity structures, shareholding structures, cash and asset contribution and transfer structures which are permissible and most efficient under the laws and regulations and taxation regimes of the county where the transaction is contemplated and other foreign jurisdictions (in the case that cross-border transaction is contemplated). The overriding goal of our corporate structuring advisory services is to assist our client in realizing the optimal value in their transaction.
DCS advisors are able to provide corporate structuring advisory services on a stand-alone basis on behalf of public and private sector clients who are pursuing a PPP/P3, project financing or M&A/privatization transaction. In certain cases, as corporate structuring advisory will be only one element of a larger project delivery program, DCS will also be providing other complementary transaction advisory services in relation to other transaction elements. Our preference is always to provide such comprehensive transaction advisory Services and coordinate all elements of the transaction, including corporate structuring on behalf of our clients.
Under any corporate structuring advisory mandate, DCS will draw from our vast global network of veteran industry expert advisor affiliates and our relationship consultants in order to assemble the most appropriate team to match the specific needs of the transaction at hand. This will always include leadership of DCS affiliate experts who possess decades of global M&A and privatization experience related to the specific sector and transaction type. In any corporate structuring advisory service mandate, our preferred role is always to serve as the lead project/program manager. Within this role we are also able to assist in the selection and procurement (or subcontracting) and management of other advisors, including local and international legal, tax, commercial advisors or other specialized advisors, as the specific transaction may require. To the extent that other third-party advisors are required, there are many value added advantages of allowing DCS to assist in the procurement of these advisors. First, DCS expert affiliates themselves possess many of the legal, commercial skill sets and we are best positioned to determine which additional outside third-party skill sets are required and which firms or individuals should be hired in these roles. Secondly, corporate structuring advisory is often very complex undertakings, requiring the management and coordination of many simultaneous workstreams. DCS advisors are experts in project and program management services and are ideally suited to manage and coordinate a multi-dimensional advisory team most efficiently and effectively.
