KPMG’s approach to due diligence focuses on key issues facing the business and drivers behind the performance of companies, highlighting potential upsides and downsides in transactions as well as potential deal breakers. Whether it is a buyside acquisition or a sellside divestment, our comprehensive due diligence exercise covers all key aspects in a particular transaction, including but not limited to financial, tax, human resource, operational and technology.

Proper due diligence is critical to determining the value of a particular target and drives the development of a customized strategy for deal execution as well as deal structure.

In addition to due diligence, we also advise clients throughout the deal cycle, such as transaction assistance, options evaluation, contract assistance (e.g., sales and purchase agreements), and support the negotiation and completion of a deal

Commercial due diligence

Whether for financial or strategic reasons, it is important for investors to obtain a good picture of macro-factors such as market dynamics and competitive landscape. Commercial due diligence analyses a target’s market environment and its prospects, as well as the target’s business plan.

In cases where financial projections were prepared, commercial due diligence analyses how robust the forecasts were prepared, potential areas for cost savings, as well as achievability of its growth projections. This gives a better factual support to the business case, along with insights into the risks and potential values of a transaction.

Even in a non-deal environment, commercial due diligence analyses sectors, markets and products, for your organic growth and expansion, which would otherwise be obscured to you. Our findings and insights equip you with the right information for your growth journey, and help shape the long term strategy for your business.
