Vendor Due Diligence - faster sale and better chances

Vendor due diligence, a due diligence assessment initiated by the seller, plays an important role in the sale of a company. It can speed up the sales process by reducing the amount of information that prospective buyers need in the run-up to the transaction. If several potential investors are to be addressed, each investor has a smaller probability of being successful. Many investors shun the costs of obtaining information about the company and the market and do not even enter into the transaction process. Our extensive due diligence report provides an incentive for buyers and thus the opportunity to appeal to a wider range of potential buyers.

Multiple benefits for you as a seller:

  • Early detection of potential problem areas and risks contained in the company, complicating the transaction; thereby the vendor is able to react accordingly in time
  • Reduction of information risks and thereby improvement of vendor’s bargaining position - price reductions, which are often demanded, can be reduced or even completely avoided
  • Greater trust in the sales process on the buyer side based on independent third party analysis
  • Training for management, as questions are being asked sooner or later anyway
  • Specific analysis of business drivers and value drivers of the company. Highlighting of value enhancement potential may contribute to a higher selling price
