Looking at the overall picture of what a Due Diligence Investigation is, one can see that it’s one of the most important things any company can do to protect itself in any financial deal, whether in the process of a merger or the acquisition of a new company.
There are various issues that need to be checked off properly before any merger can be considered and before any papers are signed. It’s a major risk for any business to enter into a merger or to acquire a company that may have been a direct competitor, without having all the facts in hand.
It’s the larger company that has to make sure that a Due Diligence Investigation is carried out, to make sure that they will not end up on the wrong side of books that have been fixed to look great but have no substance to them!
Anything fraudulent about the company to be merged with will come out in the wash of a painstaking Due Diligence Investigation, of that you can be certain.
Here are a few points that make up an in-depth Due Diligence Investigation
From a legal standpoint
It’s essential to make sure that any and all paperwork pertaining to any merger or acquisition be correctly signed and recorded painstakingly, so that not a dot or a tittle in the documents can be called into question and cause unnecessary delays, due to issues on the paperwork that still need to be resolved in order to go forward with the deal.
From a financial standpoint
Is the company you’re merging with or acquiring really making the profits they say they are, or have these numbers been fudged to make it look more attractive? You need to know the real bottom line of what’s going on with the numbers you’re presented with, which certainly requires an in-depth investigation.
This type of investigation has to be carried out by a private investigator well-versed in the nuances of everything that could be hidden by the company you are acquiring or merging with. They are able to gain access to many resources that would be unavailable to you in gathering business intelligence.
From a credit worthiness standpoint
You need to know as much as is possible about the integrity of good corporate governance, and credit worthiness, of any company you’re acquiring or merging with, in order to make an informed decision.
This is fundamental to making a good investment into the future of your company, and well worth the in-depth scrutiny a private investigator is able to carry out on your behalf, before you commit to anything.
