Financial Due Diligence

Companies buy and sell investments to meet their business objectives.

Buyers want to be sure that the financial statements and information provided by the Seller reflect the real financial results and conditions of the target company. Financial Due Diligence highlights the existing and potential financial risk area of the target company and allows the Buyer to make informed decision on the acquisition.

Sellers want to receive a fair value for the businesses that they are selling. They need to provide the Buyer on the certainty of their businesses and information as transparently as possible so as to expedite the sales process and achieve their targeted selling price.

We provide financial due diligence services through our associate partners to meet the buyers’ or sellers’ objectives in the Transaction.

Liquidation

Whether it is a situation of company intending to wind down its business in an orderly manner or that of a creditor seeking to protect its interests, we are able to act as liquidators through our associate partners either as court winding up, creditors’ voluntary winding up and members’ voluntary winding up.
