Due Diligence

The Bigger Picture In Selling Your Business

Due Diligence is an investigative research and assessment of an enterprise before a business transaction, such as a company sale.

The process involves examining all financial and operational records and other materials pertaining to the sale. Due diligence includes assessing an enterprise’s earnings, assets, liabilities, other liabilities that may be hidden or undisclosed, potential risks, prospects, and the general suitability of the business as an investment.

The due diligence process and negotiations thereof will largely influence the ultimate valuation and purchase price.

Whilst the foregoing applies more to the buyer, it is important for the seller to also undertake due diligence on the buyer – so as to examine the potential buyer’s history, business experience, reliability and, above all, ability and capability to make the purchase.
