Commercial Due Diligence

Commercial due diligence plays an important role when evaluating a company before a transaction. During this very demanding task, we concentrate on the aspects that actually influence an investment decision. Whether you require a quick check, a red flag analysis or a complete commercial due diligence, we are happy to provide committed and skilled assistance during every phase of the due diligence process. We can easily handle last-minute starts, provide expert teams and meet tight schedules. Naturally, our reports are fully bankable, as is attested by numerous transactions we have assisted in, usually in the range of 30 to 500 million Euro company value.

In our integrated approach, we combine commercial assessments, covering business, strategy, organisation, market, and environment, as well as financial analyses. Our aim is to provide you with a deeper understanding of the target company and help you realistically assess the chances and risks involved in the planned transaction. We provide market information not available to the public and contribute an independent and fact-driven view of the transaction.

Central tasks of a commercial due diligence:

  • Critical assessment of the target company's sustainability of the business model (strategic, organisational, partly operational)
  • Profound and detailed assessment of the market development
  • Competitive analysis and positioning
  • Relationship with the company's customers and suppliers
  • Assessment of macroeconomic influences and regulatory environment
  • Verification of business planning from a market perspective and subsequent assessment whether the planning is achievable

We work closely with our clients and the other due diligence teams during the assessment. This let us ensure a well-coordinated approach and a high accuracy of our appraisals.
