Buying a Business

One of the first and most important things to do is a thorough due diligence

The key to a successful acquisition is to conduct a thorough due diligence. That not only involves an in-depth review of the financial statements and the strength of the cash flows, but an analysis of their revenue channels, the condition of their assets, the quality of management and their employees, contractual obligations and the contributing value of intangibles such as brand, goodwill and market reach.
