Due Diligence for the best deal

Understanding your business

We want to be the best at analyzing companies. The Due Diligence is an important part of that. Aeternus therefore carries out specific specialist Due Diligence studies when buying and selling a company: the Commercial Due Diligence, the Production Due Diligence and the IT Due Diligence.

This allows us to penetrate to the core of the company. Each investigation follows a specific method. Both for buyers from the sector and for banks and private equity companies, who thus have a substantive check on the proposed financing or investment.

IT Due Diligence

The IT DD analyzes all aspects of the ICT environment or proprietary software. It relates the design of the development process, and development team to the financial consequences. It also gives a substantiated opinion on the risks and opportunities in the short and long term. Not only on a technical level, but also in relation to the business model and thus the effect on the value of a company. During the IT DD we work with ICT partners with years of practical experience.

Production Due Diligence

The PDD is focused on identifying and signaling risks and improvement opportunities of production assets, production processes and production organization. Overdue maintenance, the compliance or non-compliance of technical installations with safety and continuity requirements, but also production effectiveness and possible production improvements have a significant impact on the future cash flows of production companies.

Commercial Due Diligence

The CDD is a study of the market of the company being sold or bought. It determines how strong the position of the company is in the market. Also, the growth opportunities of the company are measured against the expected market developments and competitive relationships. All this is based on a solid analysis of turnover and purchases.
