Due diligence is an important part of any acquisition or fundraising process. It gives the buyer increased comfort through an independent expert’s assessment of the risks and opportunities of the proposed transaction. It helps to reduce the risk of post-transaction surprises as well as providing a sound base from which to plan the post-deal integration strategy and growth plan.
Our due diligence services have been developed to meet the needs of the mid-market sector, to include: vendor due diligence, acquisition due diligence, flotation and reporting accountant work. Our clients see our due diligence role as an advisory service as part of their transaction process, working alongside themselves and their other advisors to help deliver the deal.
We design our approach around your needs covering historical trading trends, forecast reviews, taxation and working capital assessments. Our due diligence specialists will identify key business issues through our rigorous and risk tailored business analysis process. We will then work with you to resolve these issues with a reporting method designed to suit each client. We have a reputation for giving opinions, both verbally and in writing, as well as proposing solutions rather than presenting clients with facts to form their own conclusions.
