Due diligence Requisite care

Make well-founded decisions

 

The paramount aim of a due diligence is to identify so-called deal breakers, for example, risks that jeopardise a transaction on the whole from the company's perspective. The reasons for a due diligence include company acquisitions or divestitures, stakes, taking on a new partner, company successions and much more. We support you in making well-founded financial and legal decisions. Depending on your individual needs, we will be glad to perform due-diligence examinations as red-flag, selective-scope, or full-scope due diligence.

Systematic audits: financial, tax, legal and IT due diligence

Financial due diligence provides insight into the quality of earnings of the target, as well as all other factors with relevance to the purchase price, in particular, net indebtedness (for the so-called net debt clause), as well as working capital (for the working capital adjustment mechanism).

Tax due diligence offers an overview of the tax situation of the target, drawing attention to potential tax risks that may have to be assumed, and forms the foundation for the tax structure underlying the transaction. A tax due diligence makes an important contribution to reducing the buyer's risk.

In legal due diligence, the relevant legal areas (e.g. the most important company agreements) are analysed and assessed whether potential risks could arise from an acquisition. Legal due Diligence is a crucial preemptive analysis to protect you and your company from possible disputes in the future.

The importance of IT due diligence has been increasing along with the growing digitisation of business models. An IT due diligence assesses the opportunities and risks of IT systems, IT processes and structures, and furthermore examines data protection and IT security. Therefore, it provides a good picture of the technological status and future viability of an enterprise.
