Thorough due diligence is the cornerstone of success when considering a business acquisition or financing a transaction. At Alliotts, our corporate due diligence services provide you with the peace of mind that you are buying the right business at the right time at the right price.

Our services are tailored to meet the specific needs of each deal including:

  • Pre-acquisition financial due diligence and pre-lending reviews
  • Vendor pre-sale due diligence
  • Financial reporting on mergers and acquisitions, including discounted cashflows and costs of capital valuation models
Pre-acquisition Financial Due Diligence

If problems are identified with the target company we can help you with both practical and commercial solutions to get the right outcome for your business.

Pre-lending Review

If you are setting up a joint venture or lending money to another business, a pre-lending review may confirm the deal meets all expectations or allow terms to be changed before its too late.

Vendor Pre-sale Vendor Due Diligence

If you are selling your business, then pre-sale vendor due diligence will help you see what the purchaser may see, giving you the opportunity to remedy any weak business practices.

Financial Reporting

We regularly perform financial due diligence reviews for corporate acquirers, banks and management teams both in the UK and abroad. Alliotts are members of Alliott Group which is represented worldwide. The close co-operation of Alliott Group members can provide key local information to assist with cross border transactions and with the financing of global commercial activities.

Received wisdom suggests that post-deal one half of corporate finance transactions succeed and one half fail. A cynical view would suggest that in fact one-third succeed, one third fail, and due to lack of information the management of the other third are unsure whether they succeeded or not. Good due diligence before a deal can go a long way to ensuring that the deal fits the first category and not the second or third!
