Commercial Due Diligence

We work with corporates, private equity firms and investors to assess specific deal opportunities and evaluate the target’s competitive position and performance, business strategies and sources of competitive advantage.

The strategic and commercial due diligence assessment spans from pre-deal (market due diligence), deal execution (commercial due diligence on the target) to post-deal (strategic value creation).

Typically, a Commercial Due Diligence encompasses an independent assessment on the target by evaluating the following:

  • Estimating the market size and growth potential of the target’s business
  • Analysis of the competitive environment, and the target’s competitive position
  • Analysis of key customers and the strength of customer relationships. We conduct customer referencing to provide independent feedback
  • Assessment on the achievability of projections, with specific adjustments where we believe the risk is high, or if there could be further upsides

Business Plan and Growth Strategy

We will help you develop practical and implementable strategies for sustainable growth, to enhance shareholder value – taking your business to the next level.

The Business Plan may be driven by a change in strategic direction, market opportunities, industry developments, need for fund raising or to meet regulatory requirements.

We combine rigorous market research techniques, financial analytical skills and in-depth industry knowledge to help you create a compelling, strategic case for investment.

A detailed business plan and strategic roadmap would entail:

  • Defining a target market, and develop go-to-market strategies for the business
  • Developing a robust financial model to support the business plan, taking into account key drivers of growth, revenue sources and investment requirements
  • Evaluation of organic vs inorganic growth options (make or buy) to support the business model
  • Building a strategic roadmap which highlights critical success factors and future rollout plans
