Financial Due Diligence

Our approach includes understanding the target’s control environment, including identifying and evaluating the key business and operating risks. We evaluate the quality of the target’s assets, reported earnings and recurring cash flows. We assess the reliability of the target’s projections by determining if the underlying assumptions are reasonable.  Our approach also includes identifying questionable transactions and issues that may affect the purchase price, such as off-balance sheet obligations, and revealing cost-reduction opportunities impacting post-acquisition operations.
