Financial Due Diligence

Understanding an organisation’s historical financial performance, on and off balance sheet assets and liabilities, and key assumptions underpinning projected performance is crucial to assessing the viability of a transaction and will ultimately influence the price you are willing to pay.

Whether you are buying or selling a business, we will work closely with you to understand the main drivers behind your deal, your strategic plan going forward and the associated risks in order to ensure that our scope of work is robust and meets the needs of your board, your financial backers or potential acquirer. Typically, our report will focus on a critical analysis of the historical and projected financial performance, including:

  • Identifying potential ‘deal breakers’.
  • Highlighting issues which may lead to a purchase price adjustment.
  • Understanding the working capital requirement of the business.

We also use our experience in all aspects of due diligence to provide valuable insights into the commercial, operational and post-deal transformation aspects of a transaction.
