Buy-Side Due Diligence Services

Determine whether the deal is right for you.

Your goal is to make the right acquisition for the right price — you don't want buyer's remorse.

That's exactly why the buy-side due diligence process is so important. Rigorous, objective due diligence methodology allows us to analyze and validate financial, operational and strategic aspects of the deal, making it easier for you to structure and negotiate a favorable deal.

Our pre- and post-transaction buy-side due diligence services help reveal risks and opportunities so you can make an informed decision about how and whether to proceed. We'll help you:

  • Assess the target's earnings and cash-flow quality
  • Analyze the quality of assets and liabilities being acquired or assumed
  • Evaluate the quality of working capital and recent trends
  • Identify internal control weaknesses of systems and personnel
  • Provide additional insights on the target's financial projection analyses
  • Assist with review of the purchase agreement and much more
