keystore/certificate format compatibility (pkcs12/pem)

My web application is using a PKCS12 keystore on tomcat. The client program requires a PEM format certificate. So if I convert this keystore to PEM and give the certificate to client while the server keeps using PKCS12 would that work? Or do we need the same format on both ends?
