Financial Due Diligence
Financial Due Diligence (FDD) is a market leader with many private equity and corporate clients. We regularly advise on some of the largest and most complex cross-border Deals. We help clients looking to buy a business, sell all or part of their business, refinance or list on stock exchanges through Initial Public Offerings (IPOs). The financial due diligence work we do helps buyers understand what will make a transaction successful. We thoroughly assess a target company’s finances, consider the opportunities and risks and identify potential deal issues. We also work for vendors, independently assessing businesses so that potential buyers can make informed decisions. You help your clients when making investment decisions by analysing underlying profit levels, working capital levels and balance sheet positions. Your findings are the building blocks for the deal valuation and give customers important input for the negotiation of price and terms.
At Strategy you support companies, investors and governments in their assessment of key strategic issues. Your work is based on a thorough analysis of market, competition and business information and enables our customers to make important decisions based on factual and independent research. Your recommendations are concrete, pragmatic and practical. You do Commercial Due Diligence investigations, assess attractiveness of markets, help with business planning, provide economic advice and advise around regulatory strategies.
Within Valuations you will deal with the valuation of companies in the broadest sense of the word. You are involved in deal valuations, valuations for financial reporting and shareholder disputes. You are the spider in the web because you will translate strategic, operational and financial results into a fair and independent valuation.
Delivering Deal Value
Buyers and sellers need to understand the main business drivers and key areas of opportunity to deliver deal value from transactions quickly and efficiently. Within this competence, you will support customers in the final stages of a takeover or merger, or just afterwards. You will help customers to materialize the potential value of a deal, thus ensuring the success of the investment.
Business Restructuring Services
From small family run organisations to major multinationals, Business Restructuring Services (BRS) helps underperforming businesses and those with interests in them, understand and solve their problems. That might mean coming up with strategies to turn the company around, restructure its debt and operations, or guiding it through an insolvency process. You will examine whether the company can become viable after restructuring and help in making the company a restructuring plan to obtain new financing and/or to restructure the company. You will also work on investment decisions from a crisis perspective.
A prerequisite for a successful acquisition is a well-managed process. With millions at stake our clients can be demanding, so our advice - the advice you'll eventually be giving - is critical. We need to be knowledgeable, able to build relationships quickly and effectively and think strategically. Relationships are a key part of our business. In addition to your technical work, you’ll regularly interact with a range of clients. You’ll need to have strong communication skills and the flexibility to adapt when you find yourself in different environments. Identifying new Deals is an important part of your work.
