Due Diligence

Due diligence refers to the careful review of a company as part of a company acquisition (buy side) or a company sale (sell side), and offers more certainty and reliable financial information for both the seller and the potential buyer. Strictly speaking, it is a review of risk. The aim of due diligence is to obtain as much specific information about the opportunities and risks as well as the strengths and weaknesses of a company. In doing so, both economic and tax and legal considerations are analysed. A due diligence provided by us offers both the buyer and the seller an independent evaluation of the company, provides information about its performance and its prospects for success. A due diligence report aims to address all concerns regarding the object of the sale. If the potential buyer is a competitor or an industry expert, usually a limited due diligence report, known as a red flag report, is prepared, as this is less time-consuming and costly. We often use this tool for real estate acquisitions.

Your advantages with our due diligence reports:

  • More detailed and more appropriate for the size of the business
  • Good control over the process in general with a schedule and the necessary data foundation
  • Early recognition of problems and risks
  • Certainty regarding the financial and tax situation of the company
  • Information about pricing, review of the proposed price
