Financial due diligence

Buyers in a transaction frequently rely on independent accounting due diligence to review the target’s historical and forecasted information and test the sellers assertions that are critical to the target business valuation. Sellers want to ensure that the financial information provided to potential buyers supports the asking price and has no potential surprises that could cause buyers to challenge the credibility of the seller and weaken their negotiating position.
