Maximizing Value

Sell-side due diligence, a critical component in maximizing the value of a company preparing for sale, is a long-established practice across Europe and is gaining traction in the U.S. in light of today’s competitive and efficient market.I estimate that less than 30 percent of exits in the U.S. include a systematic sell-side due diligence approach.

  • Sellers are showing a greater interest in engaging third-party firms to perform sell-side due diligence to ensure that value is maximized in the current marketplace where buyers thrive on large volumes of data and detailed analyses.
  • Sellers can better ensure successful execution of their exit strategy by conducting a deep dive assessment of the company’s quality of earnings and leveraging the findings from the sell-side due diligence process.
