Financial and accounting due diligence is an activity involving the verification, analysis and control of three fundamental aspects of a target company: operating results, financial position and cash flows, in view of a global extraordinary transaction (M&A) or a single check-up.
Extraordinary transactions are a delicate and complex time in the life of a company. Financial due diligence services maximise the effects of the deal for all parties involved, as well as first of all establishing beforehand the feasibility of the entire transaction, its execution methods and impacts on taxation.
We provide support in analysing historic and current trends and outlooks, in order to assist companies in acquisitions, divestment and strategic alliances.
By conducting these investigations, we evaluate the advantages and risks of a business deal for our clients, to establish elements of feasibility or critical aspects in relation to extraordinary transactions. Analysis of financial position is accompanied by tax due diligence, which is the key to identifying any elements of risk or critical issues not revealed by the seller.
Meeting these objectives involves conducting investigations, including of an accounting nature, which can affect the income statement and balance sheet data used as a basis for calculating the company’s value.
