Due diligence

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) require deep business insight on the part of both purchaser (buyer) and vendor (seller). All the information provided by the vendor, as well as data from open sources, should be carefully investigated and verified as part of the process known as due diligence.

Due diligence forms a sound basis for structuring M&A deals by allowing the potential buyer to understand the essence of the target business and the risks involved in acquiring it. The most effective due diligence is based on an understanding of trends in the wider business environment, as well as knowledge about specific industries or market sectors.

Our professional team includes corporate finance specialists, auditors and management consultants experienced in hands-on business management as well as due diligence. They will help you obtain the key information on your acquisition target, its value and the key risks involved, focusing on areas such as:

  • history of the business
  • business structure
  • key workflows
  • income sources and expense lines
  • the companys position in its industry, and its strategy for future business development
  • HR policy and management
  • internal control systems and policies for accounting and their application
  • the structure of assets and liabilities
  • credit history
  • financial analysis
  • an estimate of the prospects for income and cash flow, and the accuracy of any forecasts
  • an analysis of how liabilities could be discharged.

Based on the results of our due diligence, we will provide you with a range of options for proceeding with a deal, and prepare its structure once you have reached a decision.

For vendors, due diligence focuses on preparing for a deal and maximizing the valuation. Through research, we can help you prepare an information memorandum and open offer. Our extensive knowledge of M&A on the selling side helps reduce vendors risks and liabilities after a deal is completed.

The quality of our service, experience and technology is acknowledged not only by our Clients, but also by the many major auditors, international law firms and financial institutions for whom we have handled due diligence projects.
