Due Diligence

In the case of acquiring a new business or conducting a merger, IT due diligence is often a total afterthought when compared to more traditional diligence categories like legal and financial. However the information on potential IT costs and risks can make or break any deal.

Our due diligence specialists have all been on both sides of the acquisition fence and therefore possess unique knowledge of both the process and how to evaluate the outcomes.

Our experts can help to prepare for due diligence if you are looking to sell your company or merge with another. Once we have analysed your organisation we will produce documentation for the other side detailing the technology within your organisation including the early identification of potential problems, risks and liabilities any potential acquiring organisation will find problematic.

We produce a comprehensive report which includes recommendations to mitigate or reduce risk and liability on the part of a potential acquiring organisation; making your organisation a more attractive proposition and giving you a more robust negotiating platform.

If you are looking at an acquisition then our expertise in identifying the actual value, liabilities and risks associated with a potential acquisition target can be invaluable. Our report includes a detailed list of the potential risks, issues and liabilities across a number of technology areas including:

  • IPR valuation and assessment
