Financial & Tax Due DiligenceFinancial & Tax Due Diligence
RAMA’s due diligence process is focused to provide valuable information, through insighful & in-depth (investigative if required) analysis to identify key issues and drivers of historic and projected critical business & financial data and cash flow etc. Our due diligence practice follows the principles of independence, prudence, comprehensiveness, materiality and confidentiality.
RAMA due diligence reports are structured to achieve the following objectives:
→ Understand the target firm’s assets and liabilities (including contingent liabilities), internal control, the actual situation of operations management, providing a suitable foundation for follow-up negotiations, strategic investment decisions and the formulation of a post-acquisition business plan and integration program
→ Sufficiently reveal financial and tax risks (historic tax profile, planning, tax examination, acquisition/disposition and filing history to assess potential risks and opportunities)
→ Analyse target entity’s past profitability and cash flow and according to this forecast the firm’s future operational prospects
→ Determine the item of investment in question is in keeping with the acquiring party’s general strategic targets and investment principles.
“Virtual” Due Diligence
Often, emerging business houses are generally not equipped to accomplish the gigantic data / information required by DD Agencies in a structured manner and often are deprived of true value for their business. Hence, RAMA has developed a sepecific service line primarily to handhold emerging business’s managment through the cumbersome process of Due Dilligence.
RAMA’s DD service group assists the management by:
→ compiling the data / information requirement in the desired manner
→ critically analysing the information and suggesting methods for clear and crisp presentation of data / information to derive maximum value
→ preparing the management for possible queries, scenarios as would emerge out of DD excercise, analysis & evaluation of term sheet etc.
→ representing management through the process of due dilligence by providing the required information to DD Agency and adequate clarifications in case of any concerns
→ maintaning confidentiality of business critical information from being disclosed to a larger group in the organization
→ ensuring minimum disruption of the organization’s ongoing business transactions at reaosnable costs
