Knowing the above helps the acquirer position itself for future success and sets the stage to capture synergies post closing. We focus on identifying possible risks and measuring their weight in relation to the due value.

Growth-to-exit planning

Growth planning is about increasing the size and value of your business. Exit planning is about extracting the value that you’ve created from your business. We connect the two in both strategic and tactical manners and provide actionable plans with milestones to measure progress.

  • A growth plan will help you map out the next level of growth and attempt to budget for the time, resources and commitment needed to get to that next level. Whereas an exit plan will help put you on a path to bringing in someone else to take the business that you’ve created to the next level.
  • Both growth planning and exit planning follow a process.
  • Growth planning is about figuring out which areas of your business – i.e. the value drivers – should be prioritized and addressed ahead of other areas.
  • Exit planning focuses on learning about all of the exit options that are available to you so that you can determine which one best fits your business and personal goals.
Corporate due diligence
We expertly assess the viability, financial history, and potential risks of a business prior to acquisition to ensure our clients a secure and profitable transaction.
  • For us, corporate sponsored due diligence is more than just a report. It’s about providing ongoing advice beyond the initial review of the target's growth strategy and sales funnel. Our team of experts takes a deep dive into every aspect of the target's business development operations.
  • We have our own comprehensive tools and methodologies built in to our processes.
Investor diligence

To help investors determine the risks and rewards of a particular venture, we perform a detailed investigation of the target business or asset’ current contract performance and future growth plans and sales funnel.
