Financial & Tax Due Diligence

All transactions – whether mergers, acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, joint ventures, divestitures or spin-offs – are fraught with complex issues that require dedicated expert attention.  Effectively navigating the myriad of accounting, tax, regulatory, cultural and labor issues common to transactions in China is critical to ensuring that you minimise your risks and maximise your returns.

Practitioners in our M&A Transaction Services group are seasoned accounting and tax specialists who provide value-added services to corporate buyer and private equity investor clients on a daily basis.

Our due diligence and other related services focus on the most critical elements of transactions, including:

  • evaluating proposed investment structures and rationalising purchase price
  • identifying and quantifying industry and deal-specific risks and opportunities
  • evaluating quality and reasonableness of historical and projected earnings, cash flows and capital expenditures
  • assessing quality of assets
  • identifying hidden costs, commitments and contingencies
  • structuring purchase price adjustment and earn-out mechanisms
  • identifying and quantifying tax exposures
  • evaluating employee benefits, internal control structures, IT systems and risk management procedures
  • identifying integration and post-transaction transition issues.

Hence, we work closely with our industry and other specialist groups to bring the right resources to every transaction.  As an integrated team, we provide private equity investor and corporate buyer clients with a competitive advantage in making successful deal decisions – including the implementation of cutting-edge investment structures and successful post-merger integration plans.
