Vendor due diligence
You want a smooth sales process and to maximise value when you go to the market for investment in your business or to sell.
WHAT WE DO
Getting your business ready for the next big step
We work with mid-market companies helping them prepare for investment or sale. Our independent view of the business helps all parties understand what your business is today, where it could be, and how to get there. There’ll be no surprises with Armstrong acting as your trusted advisor and critical friend.
Are you looking for:
COMPREHENSIVE DUE DILIGENCE
A report that will answer all potential bidder questions and doesn’t allow room for bidder top-up. We’ll work with your management team to develop plans to exploit upside opportunity and mitigation strategies for any downside risks.
CONCLUSIVE DUE DILIGENCE
A report that provides bidders with a clearly articulated, evidence-based assessment of the business’s strengths and potential. Discussion with bidders and their advisers to help them build conviction in their investment case, generating best value for you.
CREDIBLE DUE DILIGENCE
A report that bidders can rely on without the need for additional top-up, which reduces the risk of ‘adviser competition’ and distraction for the business. Our report will demonstrate your commitment to the process and continued growth of the business.
