Due diligence is the analytical process firms go through to determine/document the value of a business or other assets generally as part of an acquisition. This analysis involves all key aspects of the business, including past financial and operating performance, asset valuation and assessment of future performance and risks.

BECK has assisted a number of firms with evaluating the value of potential acquisitions, as well as critiquing the assessments of others.

Activities often incorporated in this type of analysis include:

  • Industry comparison of historical financial performance

  • Valuation of real estate, improvements and machinery

  • Assessment of:

  1. Raw material supply and competitive pressures

  2. Market and other external trends

  3. Planned capital investments

  4. Sales and marketing strategies and practices.
