Finansiell Due Diligence
Our evaluations and conclusions provide valuable input for decision-making and negotiation, as well as facilitating external financing. A standard due diligence process includes analysis of the following:
- A company’s ability to generate earnings – analysis of previous sources of revenue, cost structures and non-recurring events that have impacted earnings.
- A company’s financial position – analysis of the balance sheet to determine the company’s cash flow, interest-bearing liabilities, and other financial commitments such as pension obligations.
- A company’s working capital needs – analysis of the organisation’s working capital needs and assessment of the normal level of working capital needed to run the business in the future.
- Current budgets and forecasts – analysis of underlying assumptions and assessment of the company’s ability to reach its goals.
