Due diligence services

The acquisition or sale of a company are both challenging processes which offer great opportunities but also bear significant risks. The comprehensive analysis of the target entity is a critical key factor for success in any M&A transaction.

Buy-side due diligence

We support you with focussed analysis of the target entity and put together all the relevant information to enable you to make an informed investment decision. Typical areas of a buy-side, or acquisition, due diligence are:

  • Identification of key value drivers
  • Identification of key financial risks
  • Recommendations for addressing the key findings in the valuation, purchase agreement or integration

Sell-side due diligence

We support you in the early stages of the sell-side process by preparing a comprehensive due diligence report on the object of sale which will provide bidders with all the financial information they require in one document. A sell-side, or vendor due diligence, can be especially beneficial for an M&A transaction, if:

  • there are several bidders in an auction process
  • the transaction is complex (e.g. carve-out)
  • the target company is active in different countries or business areas
  • time is a critical success factor
  • most interest is expected from private equity houses
