Due Diligence

We have undertaken hundreds of due diligence engagements over the years on behalf of private equity firms, mezzanine lenders, secured lenders, strategic and corporate buyers and others. Our work has comprised:

  • Financial diligence including verification of assets, reasonableness of multiples, EBITDA add backs and more
  • Market, economic and feasibility studies, and
  • Investigation into the background, financial condition and conduct of targets’ principals.

We employ a lean process designed to contain fees and focus on the diligence issues that matter.
