You have excellent talent on your in-house team. Why should you engage Astute Diligence for assistance? Here are a few things to think about when deciding whether it makes sense to utilize our services.
- What Makes You Successful? Your key success factors are having a clear business strategy, exercising thorough due diligence, and preparing and executing effective post-transaction business and integration plans. Astute Diligence assists you with each of these key success factors.
- What's at Stake? Due diligence is the cornerstone of investment and acquisition success. If failure is not an option, you may want to increase your chances of success by engaging Astute Diligence to help with analysis and planning.
- Do You Know What You Don't Know? In complex niche areas such as technology analysis and assessment of logistics capabilities, our in-house and contracted experts bring industry-leading expertise and years of experience to the table. You may find that you simply don't have specific expertise available to you in-house or simply need additional perspective -- access that talent by teaming up with Astute Diligence.
- How Can You Avoid GroupThink? Sometimes your in-house team can fall in love with a deal and neglect to ask tough questions. By working with Astute Diligence, you get a pair of "outside eyes" that can help your in-house team to be more objective in their decision-making.
- Would Additional Mentoring Be Helpful? We teach your in-house people. By working with us, your team members learn about our methodologies and techniques, enabling them to conduct some of these analyses on their own and make smarter decisions in the future.
- Are Your Internal Resources Overworked? Sometimes you have all the right people in-house but they may be over-committed. They may be working on other transactions. Rather than overstaffing (tough to do given the shortage of talented, experienced candidates) and incurring a high "burn rate", consider using Astute Diligence to fill the gaps.
- Do You Have Sufficient Legal Coverage? There are not too many laws that require due diligence per se. However, you can get in big trouble if you are sued for being negligent in your decision-making. Conducting proper due diligence by engaging outside experts is a strong defense against negligence, and thus you protect yourself legally when you engage Astute Diligence for assistance.
