Due Diligence Services
Entering into new business ventures even with companies and individuals you know, is always associated with an element of risk, often quite a large element. Effective due diligence is an essential process all companies have to implement. Blackhawk’s due diligence services, including buy side due diligence, aim to de-risk your next venture, whether from a legal, financial or commercial perspective.
At Blackhawk, we believe due diligence isn’t a one off process; to us it’s more a corporate way of life. To us, having effective due diligence processes in place is a form of continual risk assessment.
WHY PERFORM DUE DILIGENCE?
- Quantify the real risk of doing business
- Assist in accurate decision-making
- Identify red flag issues
- Provide leverage for valuation and negotiation purposes
- Verify that investment or acquisition criteria have been met
New business ventures are not the only circumstances that warrant processes that close scrutinise another party. It often involves people too, such as the appointment of a key executive or a regional representative appointed to look after your interests in a foreign country.
Deeper still, ensuring your own company is not being exploited from within, is critical in the fraud pervasive business world we all operate in. Employees can unwittingly fall prey to unscrupulous fraudsters resulting in the company’s exposure to criminal activity.
And then there are those who would deliberately seek ways to unlawfully benefit from you own business operation by manipulating the supply chain or internal processes.
Blackhawk’s due diligence services cover both pre and post transactional events.
Our Pre-emptive due diligence services help clients identify, understand and plan for risks associated with a pending business transactions, such as a merger, an acquisition or an investment.
Post-transactional due diligence services are there to assist clients that have experienced problems and now need to in identify what went wrong and how to recover from the situation.
Entering into a new business opportunity with eyes fully open and a sound understanding of just who your doing business with, not only makes solid business sense, but also provides for effective leverage in valuations and negotiations.
