Vendor due diligence
Not many entrepreneurs sell more than one business during their entrepreneurial career. As an entrepreneur, you would like to know in advance in which way you can achieve the highest price and best condition before selling your business. The specialists from the Valuation Services team conduct research and creates a report about your company that can be used for insights or potential buyers. Together with the entrepreneur, we will analyse the future financial, commercial and operational prospects. The legal structure and tax aspects will also be analysed extensively. If desired, the investigation can result in an information memorandum for potential buyers. The information memorandum can limit due diligence process for potential buyers, resulting in a more efficient sales process.
