If a company is up for sale, potential purchasers usually have its business, legal, tax and financial circumstances carefully checked and analysed. The technical term for this is due diligence. This stands for the entirety of detailed knowledge about a company. Events in the past and planned development, the market environment, financial, tax and legal circumstances, the internal structure and psychological facets will all be presented.
Financial due diligence starts with an audit and forecast for assets and earnings, cash flow and liquidity as well as equity and borrowing. Subsequently, we will sum up the main findings and report on any deal breakers. Questions about what an appropriate purchase price and its financing is will often be illuminated.
If you are thinking about buying a company, our due-diligence experts will be pleased to help you and will create a solid decision-making basis for your successful corporate transaction.
