A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. Through our comprehensive due diligence services, we'll help ensure that this is one danger to which your business will not be exposed.
Are you buying what you think you are at the right price? Experience shows that the degree to which an acquisition proves beneficial for your company is closely related to the amount and quality of due diligence carried out before the deal goes ahead.
We analyse and validate financial, commercial, operational and strategy assumptions underpinning the deal. Our in-depth reviews uncover the reality of historical data to give you well grounded opinions to assist you in your assessment of a company's prospects. We also help you use the due diligence findings to their full advantage during the deal negotiation.

Many companies are now requesting a controls review as part of the due diligence process when making an acquisition or entering into a joint venture. This is particularly relevant where the new subsidiary is located in a different country where there may be a less developed corporate governance / internal control framework. A "Controls Due Diligence" review is necessary to gain early warning of any key control weaknesses in the target companies.
