• Financial due diligence

Financial due diligence

The due diligence strategy needs to satisfy your specific requirements.   Our people are trained to listen and understand the needs of each client and tailoring the scope of our work to their specific circumstances.   We concentrate on our client’s strategic objectives to identify the key value drivers, risks, negotiation and savings opportunities that matter most to you when making an investment decision and that are key to the determination of the price.  Our professionals have direct access to the full resources of the BDO global network when needed and coordinate access to those resources through central points of contact.

 

Typically our process involves:
 

  • Assessing the quality of the profit result as well as reconciliations of free cash flows.

  • Assessing a target’s working capital components in detail in order to determine the working capital requirements.

  • Thoroughly analyzing profitability by business segment, customer, product, or service.

  • Detailed analysis of all reserves, accruals and liabilities both on and off balance sheet.  

  • Understanding the quality of the assets.
