Every buyer of a company can benefit from a specialist. This applies both to starting and to existing entrepreneurs who are seeking to make an acquisition. Acquisition of a company is usually not a minor decision. It is well worth involving someone who has the knowledge and the expertise in supervising such a process, is good at estimating the value of a business, and is a highly skilled negotiator. This person knows the market like the back of his hand, and has a hugely viable network through which he can quickly find a candidate for acquisition. With the organisation’s many contacts, the Diligence intermediary is highly adaptable, able to present wishes to a wide market, and to approach potential candidates in a discreet manner, without disclosing the buyer’s identity.
What does Diligence do?
Our services comprise:
mapping the buyer’s wishes and demands, along with his funding capacity;
drawing up a targeted search profile, with which the market is approached discreetly;
establishing contacts with acquisition candidates and their possible consultants;
requesting and assessing the required information about the acquisition candidate;
assessing the asking price, and entering into negotiations with the selling party and/or his consultants;
drawing up the negotiation result in a declaration of intent;
supervising the due diligence investigation, and discussing and negotiating the consequences of this investigation;
recording/helping to record details of the transaction achieved in contracts, up to the submission of shares to the notary public;
The Diligence M&A specialist will be in charge of the entire acquisition process. If required, additional fiscal and legal expertise can also be arranged by us, which does not cease when the transaction has been completed. The DMS can also rely on Diligence specialists for aftercare (e.g. a conflict with the buyer, arranging payments, and so on).
