Our VDD approach is focused on optimising your sale process by ensuring full control, reducing the duration of negotiations, and maximising the value of the asset.
Financial diagnosis & business plan review
We carry out financial diagnostics in the context of specific client issues. For examples, we can review the use of funds invested in a project, analyse the underperformance of a portfolio, an investment or a production unit, and identify solutions to rectify such issues.
We can also offer an independent review of your business plan and the main underlying assumptions, in the context of the creation of a new company, a new activity, or a strategic review.
In all our financial diagnostic projects and business plan reviews, we take an independent, financial expert's view so you have the information and confidence you need to act.
In addition to advising on live transactions, our teams have extensive experience in supporting with price adjustment clauses and the review of closing financial statements after a deal has been completed.
We perform detailed analysis of post-acquisition performance to determine the result of clauses in an SPA, such as earn-outs and liability guarantees, or more generally to review post-acquisition performance.
