Acquisition due diligence

Thorough investigation as a basis for well-founded decisions

During an acquisition process you need to obtain in-depth knowledge about the company you are considering purchasing quickly. Deloitte’s acquisition due diligence will quickly provide you with thorough, in-depth and objective information about the company.

Multidisciplinary research delivers the information you need

Your objectives with respect to the proposed transaction determine how the acquisition due diligence will be organised. Of course, existing agreements with the seller are also relevant to the due diligence.

The acquisition due diligence performed by Deloitte usually focuses on:

  • Commercial environment and the position of the company
  • Financial position, performance and trends
  • Tax situation and risks
  • Pension schemes
  • IT and operating processes
  • Property situation
  • Treasury and risk management

The due diligence investigation concludes with the production of a comprehensive report of findings.

Get maximum benefit from acquisition due diligence

The findings of the investigation serve as a guide for various aspects of the acquisition, including: the structure of the transaction, the business valuation, financing of the transaction, the sale and purchase contract and the post-acquisition integration plan.

You will get the most out of acquisition due diligence if you also engage the specialists of Deloitte to provide other forms of support.
