Quality of Earnings and Financial Due Diligence

If you are looking to buy a business (Buy-Side), it’s important to conduct the right amount of financial due diligence. This would include a thorough analysis of the target company’s historical books and records, discussions with management on significant processes and policies, disaggregation of financial results, and identifying irregularities or outliers that could cause those financial results to be misleading.

Similarly, if you are looking to sell your business (Sell-side), having a third party conduct this same level of due diligence in preparation of sale could save significant time and effort once on the market. In either scenario, a quality of earnings report would satisfy most if not all of the financial due diligence needed and prove beneficial to the transaction process.

Our Transaction Advisory Team has worked on transactions in varying size and complexity and can provide the appropriate level of advice and counsel.
