Due Diligence Consulting Services
Due diligence is an investigation or audit of a potential investment to confirm all facts, such as reviewing all financial records, plus anything else deemed material. Due diligence refers to the care a reasonable person should take before entering into an agreement or a financial transaction with another party.
Financial Due Diligence Services
Financial Due Diligence (FDD) is a process that analyzes the key financial metrics of a business such as the quality of income, cash flow, profits, and contingent liabilities and risks. Performing financial due diligence helps to decide if a deal has synergistic viability and a viable business case to pursue. Buyers, lenders, and sellers involved in mergers or acquisitions must identify the risks and the opportunities associated with a business under consideration. Conducting effective financial and tax due diligence can help buyers and lenders structure strategic transactions and avoid costly mistakes. It can also help sellers better understand the strengths and weaknesses of their positions pursuant to a deal.
Our FDD is helpful to evaluate the risks and worth of a deal and arrive at a reasonable price and also help to justify and validate the transaction with the stakeholders.
PayrollBd’s aim to provide clients with clear insights into the viability and reliability of potential investments, acquisition, merger or joint venture projects. We also offer practical solutions to issues identified during the due diligence that may impact the investments in the future but should be considered during the investment negotiation stage.
Our due diligence process typically includes an in-depth analysis of historical performance, cash flows, a critique of management’s forecasts, including the working capital requirements; and a review of the underlying financial systems and controls.
Through methods such as trend analysis, performance analysis, and structural analysis any anomalies and issues would be spotted. Additionally, executives and members of the management and functional heads would be interviewed. If need be, intermediary agencies and institutions would also be interviewed.
PayrollBD offers financial due diligence and transaction support services to buyers, lender, and sellers involved in merger and acquisitions.
