Acquisition Due Diligence

Deal or No Deal

Businesses are frequently sold in an organized auction process. A competitive edge is vital and influenced by the ability to deliver speedy analysis around key issues.

Successful bidders will need to complete focused due diligence to confirm price, funding and identify issues that require reflection in the sale and purchase agreement and completion accounts or the ‘locked box’ mechanism.

What we do

  • We work alongside you at every stage of the acquisition process to provide support in analyzing the key issues that affect your bid.
  • Our scope typically includes an initial assessment of critical areas in a “Red Flag” report, with summarized findings of key deal issues, implications and advice, followed by a second phase of more in-depth due diligence review of the target business and financials.

How we can help

  • Our scope of work can be tailored to best suit your key focus areas and we offer a wide range of Due Diligence disciplines, including: Financial, Tax, Pensions, Operational and IT, Strategy and Commercial; Integrity, and Environmental & Sustainability.
