Financial Due Diligence

Financial due diligence has become an important feature in merger and acquisitions. Good corporate governance advocates it, and the ever-increasing complexity of business transactions requires it.

Effective financial due diligence helps to unveil matters before they become 'surprises'. Though no two financial due diligence engagements are the same and can take on a wide range of scope, the objective in principal is the same - to provide a level of comfort in a target company's financial position and to expose hidden financial risks.

Financial due diligence is not limited to use in mergers and acquisitions: it can be deployed in business disposals as well.
