Due Diligence and Interim Management for M&A and Venture Investors


When you embark upon a merger or acquisition transaction, you put a very valuable asset on the line – the future success your company. In many cases, you may not have the time, resources or expertise to investigate another company’s organization and operations.


We have developed proprietary set of tools and procedures to streamline analysis, planning, and project management associated with mergers and acquisitions. While every procedure will be customized to reflect your needs, timeline, and priorities, we eliminate the need to start from scratch, and ensure that all priorities are covered.


Our team will work within your due diligence timetable to identify potential risks and opportunities. We coordinate with your financial and legal teams to provide business and operational insights in conjunction with their analyses. We can also assist with post-financing initiatives to increase profits and successfully integrate the operations and management of newly merged companies.
