Working alongside our clients in a competitive auction process, we provide support in analysing the key issues likely to influence their bid, involving the appropriate specialists as required. At the initial stages of an auction process, information is usually restricted to an information memorandum and a vendor due diligence report supported by a data room.
Once exclusivity is granted, we seek to perform top-up due diligence to assist the completion of the deal. Our work at this stage tends to be confirmatory in nature but will also seek to identify issues that impact on price, or those that require reflection in the sale and purchase agreement and completion accounts. It is also likely to form a key part in the diligence package to support the financing.
Your information needs extend well beyond financial aspects to such domains as tax, legal, and systems factors. Implementation likewise demands a wide range of skills. In order to free up costly client executive time, we offer solutions to all these questions from one single source.
