Financial (vendor) Due Diligence (sell side)
View this page in:
When a company is up for sale – or selling off one of its parts – it needs to show an in-depth report on its financial health to potential buyers. This is called vendor due diligence.
PricewaterhouseCoopers provides comfort to both buyers and sellers with an independent view of the business, encompassing its performance and prospects.
