Due diligence provides a detailed overview of the company. Due diligence is an important part of every purchase transaction, helping investors to take a closer look at all aspects of the company before the planned transaction. The information gathered during due diligence is also used in negotiations and helps to identify the risks to be hedged in the sales contract.
Due diligence is a thorough business, financial, tax and legal analysis of the acquired company. As a result of the analysis, we will prepare a report that provides a detailed overview of the audited company so that you can make an informed decision. This allows for a better understanding of the company's business model and key growth factors, the risks identified in the analysis and recommendations for dealing with them. The information gathered during due diligence will also be used in negotiations.
