Financial due diligence:

The main objective of financial due diligence is to confirm the reliability of information to be used in an investment decision. Financial due diligence is a key part of the process in buying a business. We will assess the risks, opportunities and commerciality of the proposed transaction – and make recommendations on how to mitigate any of those commercial and financial risks.

Vendor due diligence and vendor assistance:

Vendor due diligence: When selling a business, the vendor needs to develop an in-depth report on the business’ financial health for potential buyers. Our vendor due diligence helps both buyers and sellers by providing an independent review of the business – identifying key areas of distinction as well as areas of vulnerability, and  making recommendations to address these areas. Therefore, helping the vendor gain greater control over the sale process, and thus ultimately helping secure a higher price for the business.

Vendor assistance: Vendor assistance is provided for the benefit of the vendor only – for those considering restructuring or selling of parts of the business. We will work alongside your management team throughout the process, to ensure that all opportunities and issues are understood and the correct steps are taken to mitigate those risks.

Working capital management:

Working capital management helps companies guarantee sufficient cash flow to ensure it can meet its short-term debt obligations and operating expenses. We help businesses accomplish improvements in cash and working capital management by enhancing procedures and increasing controls.

Restructuring:

At every stage of the business life cycle, proceedings might not go as planned or expected. Our restructuring service helps our clients address the financial performance and viability challenges that they are facing. We work hard to ensure we have a full understanding of the business and help establish and implement financial and organisational solutions to enable you to adapt to the ever changing economic conditions.

Business Modelling and Valuations:

Business modelling: Building an effective financial model can be a complex and difficult task. Our team have vast experience in building extensive, complex but user friendly financial models for a wide range of businesses. We make the effort to really understand the key drivers of your business and ensure the financial model accurately reflects these. Our models are designed in such a way that they can be used effectively as a management information tool going forward.

Valuation: There is an increased need for transparent and extensive valuations to support corporate transactions. Our team has deep expertise in this area, having completing valuations for a broad variety of Irish businesses.  We continually demonstrate an ability to produce robust and theoretically sound business valuations in short timeframes.
