As a buyer or seller, this information puts you in a strong position to start negotiations. You can adjust your valuation and pricing and hedge yourself against certain risks. Moreover, you get an overview of the points that can be optimized.

Due diligence study in case of acquisition or selling of a company

Vendor due diligence 
In a vendor due diligence or vendor assist report, we provide a clear insight into the financial figures and the main risks and opportunities when selling. Afterwards, we guide you through the report and discuss the results with you. 
Thanks to this comprehensive assessment, you will be well-prepared to address any questions from the counterparty throughout the M&A process. Moreover, you can take steps in advance to ensure maximum value creation and a seamless transaction. In addition, you save a lot of time since, as a seller, you only have to go through the entire due diligence process once. 

Buy side due diligence 
As a buyer, you want to avoid unpleasant surprises. A due diligence investigation identifies the risks and opportunities associated with a takeover. This gives you a complete and objective picture at the start of an acquisition process.
