Due diligence report services
We have extensive experience in due diligence investigations. We will tailor our investigative approach to your requirements. Our report to you will cover the activities of the target company and its financial position. We will highlight any potential risk areas to you.

Business Valuations
Whether you are valuing your business for sale, succession planning or restructuring, a realistic and a comprehensive valuation is vital. For acquisition we will value the target business to assist you in quantifying the purchase consideration.

If you are selling your business, you want to reap the rewards of your hard work. We work in partnership with our clients to achieve their desired results. Initially we will identify your objectives. We will value your business, prepare it for sale and manage the process to completion. Our tax specialists work closely with our corporate finance team to minimise tax burdens.

Raising capital finance
We can advise you on the most suitable capital structure for financing an acquisition or for the growth of your business. We will assist you with the preparation and/or review of your business plan and outline funding document.
We will:

  • Review your existing financing arrangements.
  • Negotiate with and present proposals to financial institutions.
  • Arrange and structure finance.
  • Introduce you to potential sources of appropriate funds.

We have successfully completed many complex deals in all industry groups specialising in professional services, construction, tourism, retail, manufacturing, farming and leisure sectors. Our personal approach to doing business coupled with our expertise results in our clients achieving their goals.

Business Diagnostics
Our business diagnostic software allows us to perform a powerful analysis of your business and give your business a complete “health check.” We can help you identify where improvements can be made and what can be done to enhance performance.

The process will identify the current situation of the business in its wider business environment and will reveal the current strengths, weaknesses opportunities and threats facing your business.
Our diagnostic tools leverage methodologies and approaches promoted by top-tier business schools and will give you full visibility into the issues you may face.

In addition, we can perform an analysis of the internal strategic and operational factors including the production process, marketing and sales, people, systems and processes and financial management practices.
