Buying or Investing
Are you in the market to acquire or make a significant investment in an existing business?
Committing to purchase or invest in a business can be complex and requires significant research to ensure a full understanding the nature, quality and value of the investment opportunity.
Abacus 360 understands that having a professional, measured and unbiased review of your potential acquisition or investment and someone to help you with the final negotiations, can help you make optimal decisions with confidence.
With every due diligence review, our aim is to give you, the investor or buyer, a level of assurance that the target business represents real fair value and is free of unacceptable risk.
Our due diligence reviews will help you to:
- Know if the financial performance of the business in question is consistent with reports and claims from the seller
- Understand if there are any negative taxation issues within the business
- Know what and where the risks are within the business and if they could significantly impact on your investment plans and goals
- Uncover any operational issues that may present a risk or an opportunity
How does it work?
The start of any effective due diligence review is to understand why you are in the market to make an acquisition or investment. We want to know what is important to you, so that we can develop a scope of due diligence that will cover all of the important areas to assist you in making your decision.
The scope of due diligence will be tailored to your areas of focus. We can provide guidance on what to include based on the industry and profile of the target business.
Often a due diligence scope includes a review and verification of financial data and claims and a review of the targets tax affairs. We will look into risk areas such as revenues, margins, operational performance, hidden or contingent liabilities, asset values and employee profiles.
At the end of the due diligence process you will receive a report that highlights issues, concerns, risks and opportunities for your consideration.
This can be one of the single most important process you undertake before making the call to buy or invest in a business. Don’t leave to to chance or take the buyers word for it.
