Vendor assistance services
Change of ownership generates a range of consequences that the vendor may well have neglected to take into account. A well-prepared transaction process can lead to a higher price, a more favourable sales agreement and less disruption to the day-to-day management of the business. If a transaction process is poorly prepared, it is a risk that the purchase price may be reduced during the negotiation phase or – worst case – that the entire transaction process is terminated.
Prior to a transaction process, BDO provides assistance with carve out or de-merger of business areas, preparation of pro forma accounts and evaluations of issues related to tax and VAT in connection with the sale of whole or parts of a business.
In addition we typically assist with:
- Project management and negotiation assistance
- Structuring of the transaction
- Due diligence readiness
- Data room assistance
- Preparation of data pack and Seller’s Information Document
- Vendor due diligence
