We will show you how a Commercial Due Diligence is carried out in the context of a Private Equity transaction and its challenges.
Leveraging an international case study, you will analyse the market, the competitive environment and the business plan and strategy of the target.
Moreover, you will make use of Data & Analytics (e.g. data scraping, enhanced analysis tool) to uncover hidden market and competitive insights. In doing so, you will determine the feasibility of the targets set out in the business plan and show their effects on the financials.
It will also be critical to analyse the risks and opportunities in the areas of purchasing, production, logistics and sales, as well as research & development. This will give you an overview of the target's operational strengths and weaknesses and their impact on the financials. With your expertise, you will assist the buyer in the operational and financial aspects of the potential acquisition and in later contract negotiations.
