Investing in a business, either by acquisition or by becoming one of several shareholders, is an important financial decision. An investment offers potential returns, but also inherent risks associated with the investment returns. It is important to make a well-informed investment decision with consideration for both the potential returns and inherent risks of your acquisition target.
William Buck’s Pre-Acquisition due diligence review begins with understanding the rationale for the acquisition and/or investment, working with you to carefully design the due diligence process taking into account any areas of particular concern, critical analysis of financial and non-financial data and presentation of the findings in a detailed written report which focuses on the important issues. William Buck’s due diligence methodology provides a report which is comprehensive and easy to read, with any identified risks clearly highlighted as well as suggested solutions. William Buck also provides parties wishing to sell their business with Vendor Due Diligence providing potential bidders with a detailed financial review of the business to allow for a more streamlined and faster sale process.
