Vendor Due Diligence

Providing independent, robust financial reviews to a wide variety of clients.

Vendor Due Diligence

Vendor due diligence, as part of a sales process, has many benefits, including:

  • Provides vendors with greater control over the sales process
  • Provides purchasers with access to consistent, reliable robust information to support and inform their investment decision. Moreover, the eventual purchaser has full reliance on the VDD
  • A common platform of financial information, able to be distributed to multiple interested potential acquirors; and
  • Reduces uncertainty for buyers, potentially maximising the sales price, whilst minimising any possible ‘price chipping’

Our dedicated, highly experienced, Transaction Services team will work closely with you to:

  • Define a tailored scope of work to meet your specific needs – in particular, those of the potential interested parties
  • Identify value issues early, providing an opportunity to address prior to the launch of any formal sales process
  • Minimise disruption to the business whilst performing our work
  • Deliver a robust, comprehensive, financial review of the business
  • Work closely with your other advisers, specifically, the sell-side M&A advisers to ensure consistency of the numbers in the Information Memorandum; and
  • Ensure our work is timed such that the vendor retains the pace and control over the sales process

Our Transaction Services team advises a wide variety of clients including; private equity, debt funders, SME’s, large and multi-national companies across a range of sectors.
