Preparing Companies for a Smooth Exit

Due Diligence can be labor intensive, disruptive to the team, and impact the exit results.  Executing a smooth process can be one of the biggest challenges companies face when they seek additional funding or entertain an offer from a buyer. 

 

The list of items requested typically includes several hundred artifacts and can take a substantial amount of time to pull together.  Some of the information may be on hand and just needs to be added to a data room.  But lots of data generally must be pulled together or may not exist at all.   As a result, valuable time is spent on the task and team members that are assisting are unable to spend time on normal business activities.  Incomplete or poorly organized documents can lead to questions and uncertainty on the part of the investor or buyer, which could lead to a lower business value.  On the other hand, well organized information that has details to prove the value of the company can aid in a higher value and a smooth exit.   

The best way to get through due diligence easily is to perform a trial diligence well before planning to exit and then performing refreshes via a regular cadence.  Our Exit Preparation and Trial Diligence Package serves as a baseline that can be gradually improved upon over time.
