1. Buy-Side and Sell-Side Due Diligence:

We conduct thorough due diligence assessments to provide a comprehensive understanding of the targets’ or sellers’ financial and operational performance. This analysis helps identify potential risks, opportunities, and areas for value enhancement.

2. Quality of Earnings Reports:

Our team evaluates the target company's earnings quality, assessing the sustainability and accuracy of reported earnings. This analysis provides crucial insights for informed decision-making during the transaction process.

3. Business Valuations:

We leverage our expertise in financial analysis and market research to determine the fair value of businesses. Our comprehensive valuation services support clients in negotiating favorable terms and making informed investment decisions.

4. Deal Structure Advisory:

We provide guidance on structuring transactions to optimize value, mitigate risks, and align with clients' specific objectives. Our advisory services help navigate complex deal structures and ensure the best possible outcome for our clients.

5. Purchase Price Allocation (PPA)

PPA refers to the process of allocating the purchase price of a business or an acquisition to specific tangible and intangible assets acquired in the transaction. This involves a detailed analysis to determine the fair values of identifiable assets such as property, plant, and equipment, as well as intangible assets such as patents, trademarks, customer relationships, and technology.

6. Working Capital Target Calculations:

Our team helps establish appropriate working capital targets to facilitate a smooth transition and ensure the ongoing financial health of the post-transaction entity.

7. Post-Closing True-Ups:

We support clients in performing post-closing adjustments to account for any variations in working capital, net debt, or other financial metrics agreed upon in the transaction.

These services, among others, reflect our commitment to providing comprehensive support and adding value throughout the M&A transaction process. With the KROST M&A and Capital Markets department by their side, clients can benefit from our expertise, tailored solutions, and meticulous attention to detail.
