In a new environment for private equity firms, a
logical first step would be to begin investing more
aggressively in due diligence.
(McKinsey & Company)
For the investment opportunities that make it past the preliminary diligence phase, a thorough strategic analysis can set the stage for value creation. While the in-house diligence team, bankers, accountants, lawyers, and others perform the diligence that determines whether the materials presented are factual, the strategic diligence determines whether the value creation opportunity really exists.
Bringing together all of the pieces of strategic analysis necessary to get a deal done, The RobinsonEdwards Group can eliminate the need for multiple vendors to complete the analysis of the company’s operations, management capacity, customers, and industry. This provides the added advantage of being able to paint a complete picture of the value creation potential of the investment.
