  • Identifying and analysing the main financial drivers that impact the purchase price.
  • Analysing tax and labour practices and potential risks.

  • Conducting a post-acquisition audit and preparing an opening balance sheet.

Vendor due diligence

We also help you handle sales processes:

Each project begins with an assessment of the particularities of each transaction and a services proposal based on our experience.
