Due diligence

Financial due diligence (or FDD) can be carried out on a prospective acquisition, buyer or partner. PEMCF is able to carry out independent and bespoke FDD that will help to provide clarity to your decision making.

FDD helps to tackle issues early by revealing information:

  • that could be used to negotiate price
  • which may have a bearing on your final investment decision
  • which may aid the tax and financing structure
  • upon which transaction terms may be based
  • for which protection in the form of warranties or indemnities may be required

What we offer

Our tailored approach to due diligence is to base it on a thorough understanding of the business to be reviewed. Unlike most other firms,our approach is to deliver a due diligence evaluation which utilises our senior staff and their extensive corporate finance lead advisory experience. This enables us to deliver commercially focused reports of real value to our clients, and we can frequently add value to the deal process as a result.

We have significant experience in providing FDD to businesses that range in size and complexity, both buy side and sell side, across a range of sectors.
