Post Transaction Support
Managing the issues and liabilities identified by the due diligence process is crucial to achieving the best value from a transaction and aiding integration.
This approach benefits a business by reducing risks during the period of ownership and enhances the value at the point of divestiture / exit.
The due diligence process will identify any number of issues that require attention. These can include operational improvements to ensure a business complies with key legislation such as REACH or the Energy-using Products Directive; or improvements in environmental management standards to mirror the industry best practice status of the acquirer’s existing operations.
There is also the risk of regulatory action or third party liability from assets identified to have contaminated land or asbestos issues. These issues will require attention to ensure they don’t affect long term value.

“They are one of a new breed of environmental consultancies looking at things much more from a business rather than a technical perspective.”
