Financial Due Diligence
Vendor Assistance and Vendor Due Diligence
When a company is up for sale - or selling off one of its parts - it needs to show an in-depth report on its financial health to potential buyers. This is called vendor due diligence. PwC provides comfort to both buyers (acquires) and sellers (vendors) with an independent view of the business, encompassing its performance and prospects.
Vendor due diligence aims to address the concerns and issues that may be relevant to even the most demanding purchaser. For vendors undertaking a disposal or selling off a part of their own business, vendor assistance provides bespoke solutions to assist you in successfully completing your divestments.
Our vendor assistance specialists work alongside company management and their lead advisers throughout the process, ensuring that opportunities and issues are understood and the correct steps are taken.
Buy side due diligence
Any organisation considering a deal needs to check all the assumptions it makes about that deal. Financial due diligence offers peace of mind to both corporate and financial buyers because it analyses and validates all the financial, commercial, operational and strategic assumptions being made. It also uses past trading experience to form a view of the future and ensure there are no 'black holes'.
Service components include revenue, commercial and market due diligence, synergy validation, maintainable earnings, future cash flows, all operational issues, and deal structuring.
