M&A Consulting

M&A Due Diligence: Lock In On Potential Risks & Synergies

Over 50% of M&A deals fail, often due to shallow preparation and foresight. Robust due diligence clarifies all the facts, risks and outcomes of a potential deal across not only finance and operations but also HR, IT and other key business functions.

Core M&A due diligence activities:

  • checkmark circle 2 outline teal
    Legal and Financial Analysis
    See every opportunity ahead. Review your target's strengths and risks, including:
    • Financial metrics and performance
    • Internal controls
    • Growth profile
    • Litigation risks
    • Production capabilities
    • Intellectual property
  • checkmark circle 2 outline teal
    Valuation
    Get a measured, data-driven valuation to project the outlook of the deal years out.
    • What is the Net Present Value (NPV) or Internal Rate of Return (IRR)?
    • Is the value attainable based on customer insights?
    • Is the value attainable based on board insights?
  • checkmark circle 2 outline teal
    Optimization
    Refine your deal strategy and the road after close:
    • Are there new tax opportunities you can leverage?
    • Will you need to consolidate or enact other efficiency measures?
    • Will you adopt the IT and HR systems the target uses?
    • How much change will you need to invest in and orchestrate?
