Investors, bankers, and acquirers rely on Due Diligence as a standard of care during Mergers and Acquisitions. Due Diligence is commonly used by investing partners as a pre-investment intelligence tool in order to obtain an independent and sophisticated report concerning the investee’s credentials. Promoters seeking investments or in negotiations with investors mandate a mock due diligence to prepare themselves for the actual process initiated by the investor.
The efficacy of an independent reliable due diligence report is a decisive factor for investors looking to go ahead with a proposed investment. We at BDO in India specialise in providing financial and tax due diligence support to our clients. Our process also establishes the risk profile for an investment and supplements the validation of business assumptions and valuation benchmarks being used.
Our people are trained to identify, understand, and communicate key value drivers, risks, and the opportunities that matter most to our clients. Our varied experience helps us deal with industry specific issues more effectively.
