Sell-side Due diligence by Craig Clay – full bio at bottom of the post
Selling your company may be the most important milestone in your professional career. The sale process can be tedious and complicated with potential buyers investigating all aspects of your business. Reviewing your financials, compliance documents, organizational structure and tax positions in the early stages of going to market allows plenty of time for remediation of any uncovered issues, which can maximize the transaction value and accelerate the sale process. Companies that undertake these sell-side due diligence reviews before going to market have a much better chance of impressing buyers, increasing their sale price and reducing the potential delays during a transaction.
