Due Diligence

A due diligence investigation is a crucial process for acquisitions or mergers. It’s critical to possess a full understanding of a business’s accounts, assets, staff and other elements in order to mitigate risk and make decisions from a fully informed position. Howard Agency carries out due diligence investigations to ensure all of the necessary checks are completed for a successful acquisition or merger.

Acquiring a new business requires a significant investment of both time and money. The information received from the company being considered for sale can vary in quality, and may not be entirely accurate. We can ensure everything is examined thoroughly and compared with the information that has been declared. Once you possess the correct information, you will be in a much better position to choose whether to proceed with the purchase, renegotiate or walk away from the purchase.

Due diligence may involve investigating a number of different elements of a business, including its financial position. Other important factors include IT and technology, company culture and employees, and the business’s customer base. Performing due diligence for all of these business elements prevents costly, time-consuming mistakes both during the purchase process and further down the line.

It should be carried out by professionals, rather than autonomously, and vital to have an independent service to provide an objective overview of the company.

As a highly experienced Private Investigation agency, Howard Agency will carry out due diligence investigations for mergers or acquisitions to provide transparent information in order to make the best-informed decision for your business.

He was very helpful and concise with his advice and having instructed his firm, they carried out surveillance enquiries for me both in London and Prague. They were discreet and very professional, but most importantly for me, successful. They kept me informed every step of the way and provided a very comprehensive report with accompanying video and photographic evidence. I would highly recommend Kevin and his colleagues”
