Due diligence

When you are intending to buy a company, you will not rely solely on the documents furnished by the seller in determining your purchase price and reaching a decision on the investment concerned. Rather, an in-depth examination of the company on site (due diligence) is necessary. A team of experts is set up for this purpose. We support our clients throughout all phases of the due diligence process:

  • Financial due diligence: We assess the target company's economic situation by reference to its most recent annual financial statements and current evaluations from the area of controlling.
  • Fiscal due diligence: Our tax consultants examine the company's fiscal risk position and determine an ideal structure for the takeover transaction for tax purposes.
  • Strategic due diligence: We support executives from the buyer's side who are conversant with the products, technologies and peculiarities of the sector concerned as they analyse strategic strengths and weaknesses.
  • Staff due diligence: The success of a takeover hinges on the quality of the target company's management personnel and workforce.
  • Legal due diligence: Experienced lawyers from our network examine legal risks which require corresponding guarantees and warranties in the contract of sale.

Interested? We look forward to hearing from you.
