Due Diligence

Focus on the factors that count

You are planning to acquire or sell a company. But is it a wise move? To make an informed decision, naturally you need to assess financial and tax-accounting criteria. Yet, in many instances, there are also other value drivers that need to be considered, such as market position, quality of IT, operating possibilities and reputational risks. How do you identify and gain a clear understanding of the value drivers that count given the nature of your business?
