Due Diligence

Transactions that have been through a comprehensive due diligence process are ultimately the most successful. Determining the effectiveness of processes, infrastructure, systems and financial reporting as well as identifying areas of future capital requirements are essential to conducting effective due diligence and will ultimately allow an organisation to maximise value.

Creating shareholder value through acquisitions is a necessary, but often challenging part of many companies’ growth strategies. From a management perspective, identifying the right acquisition is critical. If the deal destroys value, however, management becomes more vulnerable than ever before.

A thorough and appropriate due diligence process is essential for all your financial projects, to investigate and assess risk, validate all financial assumptions and provide peace of mind.

We aim to understand your strategy and tailor a due diligence approach specific to your needs. This approach will include the following:

  • Pre-deal evaluation

  • Transaction evaluation

  • Structuring advice

  • Vendor assistance

  • Contract assistance

  • Integration

  • Post-deal implementation

African Venture Group's holistic, value-driven approach to due diligence will increase the probability of success in your deal. Our unique advisory approach to transactions allows us to help you identify both the opportunities and the obstacles to realisation of value.

Our advice is tailored to our clients’ needs, the industry sector and factors specific to the transaction. We can assist right across the transaction cycle or we can provide assistance in only one particular aspect at any point in the cycle.
