Due Diligence – how you discover the true value

Due diligence is the process by which you determine the true cost or value of a business transaction, whether it be buying, selling or merging companies, investing in a major project or entering a contract with a new supplier.


By identifying the potential for value creation, you can put a price on the transaction. What you discover through due diligence has a significant impact when negotiating the terms of your transaction. However, it is not a “one size fits all” process. There are many types of due diligence and the elements you include will depend on your individual case.
