Vendor due diligence
In a vendor due diligence, Transaction Services team performs a due diligence from the view of a prospective buyer, ordered by the vendor. The results of the vendor due diligence are disclosed to potential buyers, but also provide useful information for the vendor to be prepared best for the sale.
The advantages of vendor due diligence include better control over the sales process by the vendor as well as less disruption to the business to be sold, otherwise caused by the individual due diligence procedures of the bidders.
In addition, vendor due diligence reduces the overall transaction cost and increases competition amongst the bidders. Vendor due diligence can be especially useful in competitive tender processes and for the disposal to mainly financial investors.
The efficient management of a disposal together with a maximization of the sales proceeds requires careful planning and preparation. Our Transaction Services team will help you compile financial and operating data for potential investors and prepare and organize data rooms. With an independent analysis of the business to be sold, our professionals will help you avoid negative surprises during the disposal process, and thus strengthen your bargaining position with potential buyers.
