I wrote a blog post in August about KPMG being in talks with sourcing consultancy Equaterra. As far as a source of mine is concerned this deal is still in the pipeline.
The Dutch press think it’s a done deal. Here is an article in Dutch
The headline is “KPMG Advisory voert due diligence uit op EquaTerra”
The English translation is: “KPMG Advisory performs due diligence on Equaterra.”
Now there is a lot of speculation that Deloitte is also going to buy a sourcing consultancy, in the form of TPI.
Yet again there is another article in the Dutch press, although as far as I can work out this is a denial from TPI of any knowledge of Deloitte’s interest.
It would be interesting if the big business consultancies start clearing up the sourcing consultancy sector. Would it leave a gap for a new player or is it a sector that needs consolidating?
