Due diligence

  • What is the target business worth?
  • Are there any problems with the business?
  • What can be done to mitigate the impact of any such problems?

An acquisition offers the chance of future rewards for the acquirer. But rewards go hand in hand with risks. Risks can rarely be eradicated; but they can be understood and managed. The insight we have brought to clients when investigating potential targets with our due diligence approach has helped them avoid potentially adverse investments and also better manage those which they have proceeded with.

Due diligence is a key process in any successful acquisition – you will want to understand fully ‘warts and all’ of what it is you are intending to acquire. We work together with our clients to identify key risks and focus our due diligence work on these – saving clients time and money.

Our team also brings its extensive transactional experience to bear on a due diligence investigation. This has proven successful in not only identifying problems, but also potential solutions to them.
