Whether you’re looking to sell your company or buy another, you need the right information to evaluate your risks, inform the valuation, and structure the deal.
A successful transaction relies on deep insight into market trends, earnings and quality concerns, and operational integration – and the data analysis skills to turn these insights into actions. At Crowe, we provide a focused and flexible approach to due diligence services for mergers and acquisitions. Whether you’re a strategic buyer, private equity firm, or a lender, we can work with your team to analyze your specific needs and uncover the real value and inherent risks of your transaction. Our fully integrated, cost-effective, data-driven approach can help you work through your deal with confidence and ease.
Due diligence gives you the opportunity to gather everything you need (and want) to know about a company, so you can make the right choice when it comes to buying or selling. From validating seller numbers to identifying operational levers for value creation, from understanding IT applications, to evaluating ESG opportunity, this process gives you a holistic look at how a company operates.
In due diligence, you want to identify exactly what you’re buying, and find ways to quickly advance the investment thesis post-close.
Because there is so much data to manage and so many areas of the business to consider (not to mention the other details you’re handling), it’s almost impossible for one person – or even an internal team – to manage. But you don’t have to do it alone.
Our team’s approach to due diligence combines deep expertise with a deep knowledge of data analysis to focus on both the facts and how you should react to them. We don’t just tell you what’s wrong but give you suggestions on how to best address any issues.
Our team understands how each area of the business interacts with and affects the other – and we make those connections in our reports.
As we find problems, we can also help untangle them – for example, if we find a financial issue, we can consult with our operations team and try to find a solution. In every case, we’ll give you the most critical things you should do post-close to inform your investment strategies and help you get moving – or we can help you decide if you should leave the deal entirely.
Our team combines integrated services and deep industry expertise to help accelerate your value capture.
