    • TBR T E C H N O L O G Y B U S I N E S S R ES E AR C H , I N C . TBR SPECIAL REPORT PwC expands strategy and technology management consulting reach with acquisition of Booz & Company Patrick M. Heffernan, Professional Services Practice Senior Analyst (patrick.heffernan@tbri.com) Oct. 30, 2013 PwC narrows the gap with Deloitte and potentially cements itself as a leader in emerging technology digital by acquiring a management consulting competitor. PwC’s announcement of its pending acquisition of Booz & Company stopped months of rumors about Infosys or Accenture acquiring the strategy-centric management consultancy but confirmed TBR’s assessment that the management consulting space remains ripe for major disruptions. When the deal is finalized Big Four audit, tax and advisory firm PwC will bring on board the 13th largest vendor covered by TBR’s Management Consulting Benchmark, with 2012 global revenues of nearly $1.4 billion and 3,700 employees. Combined revenues will not propel PwC into first place (Deloitte will stay on top), but Booz & Company grew in the most significant and dynamic management consulting area: emerging technologies, specifically digital. PwC’s previous digital acquisitions provided the technology; Booz & Company gives PwC the strategy and operations overlay that may take clients from interested in new technologies to ready-to-invest. In the coming days, TBR will provide further analysis and consider some of the following questions:  How will PwC retain Booz & Company partners, particularly those likely to lose clients because of Sarbanes-Oxley rules restricting consulting services to audit clients?  Can Booz Digital, Ant’s Eye View, and Thoughtworks be crafted into a single PwC digital offering?  Why Booz & Company? Specifically, what separated Booz & Company as an acquisition target from its peers in the management consulting space?
