Transaction Diligence

Two of the most critical questions facing our clients during a transaction are: Should an investment or divestment be made, and at what price?

To help answer these questions and make timely and informed valuation and transaction decisions, our Transaction Support team provides fast and high quality analysis focused on high-impact deal drivers, including commercial and strategic priorities, financial and regulatory risk, operations, synergies and financial statement impact.

Our clients benefit from our insightful advice based on our experience of advising on 1,000 transactions annually. Our core focus is to assess the sustainability of the Target’s growth and profitability, quality of cash flows and assets, and identify hidden liabilities and contingencies. Our advice underpins and identifies key focus areas to support the negotiation of key transaction terms as well as post-closing needs including integration and financial reporting.
