Vendor Due Diligence

Given current uncertainty around funding a transaction, investors now require a greater degree of information prior to committing their own resource.

What we do

A vendor due diligence report is of interest for a seller in a competitive auction process with a number of potential buyers or in a dual track process when preparing a company for an initial public offering (IPO).
Working closely with your business, we identify and resolve issues in the divestment process to provide a vendor due diligence product which enables you to retain control of the transaction process while reducing disruptions to the on-going business. The challenge for senior management is to ensure that the vendor due diligence reports provide a consistent sales message, whilst maintaining a robust and independent view in order to instil confidence in the potential buyers.

Our services normally go hand-in-hand with a managed sale process and controlled data room access. Our vendor due diligence offering can cover a number of areas. It is tailored to your needs and the specific needs of the bidders, including insights on financial (historical and future), tax, operational, commercial, strategic, and pension and human resources topics.

How we can help

Vendor Due Diligence is key to a sale process in the following scenarios:

  • The nature of the transaction means that due diligence will be a pre requisite for any bidder;
  • There are a number of potential purchasers involved in an auction process;
  • The timetable is tight and the maintenance of confidentiality is important;
  • Disruption to the business is to be avoided; and
  • The transaction is complex in nature and you wish to control the level of questions/information requests from potential purchasers;
  • The benefit to you is that indicative bids will be of a better quality and you retain control of the process.
