Acquisition Due Diligence

Informed investment decisions

Whether you are looking to buy a business in an auction process, with exclusivity, or making a speculative approach, you will maximise your ability to make an informed investment decision if you have access to swift and comprehensive analysis around the key issues.

Due Diligence Expertise

In an ever more complex business environment, we can support you in the analysis and assessment of available information in order for you to make an informed decision and create the best value from a transaction. Our due diligence expertise (financial, commercial, operational and IT) is complemented by industry and functional experts.

International network of professionals

We have an international network of professionals across a wide range of sectors with extensive diligence experience. We work alongside you at every stage of the acquisition process to provide support in analysing the key issues that affect your bid and can support you all the way through the process including specialist sale and purchase agreement advice and post-merger integration services.

Deloitte work closely with sponsors to develop a focussed due diligence exercise which provides the company and its sponsors with comfort over the robustness of its operations. Specific achievable actions and near-term remedies for Sales, Operations, Finance, Tax and Working Capital are also created. Our Value Creation Plan team can also identify potential increases in EBITDA on your acquisitions.

Our targeted due diligence approach

Our Diligence offering is designed to keep you in control and aware of issues as they arise, as well as providing expertise and informed advice in order to support you in developing your deal strategy.
