Financial Due Diligence (Buy side & Sell side) Services
View this page in:
All businesses involved in an acquisition, as buyers or sellers, need to ensure that the financial information they hold is as accurate as possible, not only to prevent paying too much (or in a seller’s case receiving too little) but also to ensure that their governance and risk management objectives are met.
Our main advisory
Any organization considering a deal needs to verify all assumptions made. Financial due diligence provides peace of mind to both corporate and financial clients, by analyzing and validating all the financial, commercial, operational and strategic assumptions being made.
- Buy-side financial due diligence
For the acquiring party, we enhance the purchaser's understanding of the target business and therefore increase the likelihood of the deal being successful by verifying how well financial information reflects the condition of corporate or business.
Through financial due-diligence, would-be buyers can help to identify and focus attention on the factors in the business that will be critical to its future success.
We help clients to identify and understand critical success factors and therefore improve their understanding of all the relevant issues so that informed decisions can be made.
By providing purchasers with greater certainty over the nature of the business and the characteristics of its cash flow, we help pricing decisions and the level of gearing the structure will support.
- Sell-side financial due diligence
Our experienced professionals provide vendors with greater control over the sale process and the timing of sale, which can help secure a higher price for the business.
We reduce disruption to the business as the sale process is more controlled.
By assisting with an early identification of value critical issues, we provide the option to “regroup and fix” outside the glare of publicity.
To ensure an efficient sales process, vendors need to present their financial information to potential buyers as transparently as possible. Our independent professionals provide potential buyers with certainty about the business and the nature of its cash flow.
We reduce the business disruption and accelerate transfer to new owners by providing rapid execution of the divestment from the point of announcement for vendors.
