Before buying or selling a business, Monroy Petersen can help you analyze and validate critical information to assure that the proposed transaction is executed at a fair price and under appropriate terms. We devote particular attention to identifying and quantifying financial, operational, and legal risks involved in the proposed transaction that may affect your decision to move forward in the process.

Why should I do a due diligence?

As a buyer, you will assume certain business and financial risks that may not be completely eliminated by a purchase agreement. However, you can understand these risks, and take the necessary steps to mitigate them, by obtaining detailed knowledge of the target company before closing the transaction. Performing a comprehensive due diligence will help you not only to control these risks, but also to confirm that the price you offered for the business is in line with your understanding and expectations.

As a seller, you may not be aware of the full value of your business, or you may have difficulty convincing a buyer of the synergies and future opportunities created by the proposed transaction. Performing a detailed due diligence may help you to enhance the value of your business and can improve your leverage during the negotiations process.
