Focused Due Diligence
How can you know if a potential target will make a sound investment? Focused Due Diligence can help provide a clearer picture of exactly what you plan to buy.
We can help you uncover and quantify industry-, country- and deal-specific risks and opportunities; identify hidden costs, contingencies and commitments; discover tax exposures; evaluate historical and projected cash flows; assist in structuring purchase price adjustment mechanisms; assess the target company's internal control picture; understand the impact of regulatory matters on the target company's industry; and evaluate employee benefits, information technology systems and risk management practices.
Tax and Accounting Structuring
Our goal is to help clients gain a competitive edge with their efforts to successfully execute transactions that maximize value and returns while effectively mitigating risks.
Our professionals can suggest alternative tax and accounting structures; identify opportunities to reduce federal, state and foreign taxes; maximize the use of acquired net operating losses; prepare pro forma financial statements illustrating the effects of various structuring alternatives on future cash flows; and prepare formal accounting and tax structuring memoranda. For cross-border transactions, we recommend the best solutions relating to repatriation of cash; placement of debt; taxes, customs and duties; and foreign currency issues.
Portfolio Company Services
The deal is closed. Now what? Our Portfolio Company Services group can help address issues that private equity firms face with the companies in their portfolio. Our practitioners have experience in transitioning newly acquired companies to professional ownership and work to help improve performance. Services include the development of board-level reporting packages and cash forecasting, performance improvement and turnarounds.
