Over the past few years our transaction services team has:
- performed many financial due diligence investigations, and
- undertaken vendor due diligence as part of controlled auction processes
In addition to full due diligence investigations, our clients often use us for tailored work, including:
- abbreviated reports,
- pre-bid support work,
- reviews of vendor due diligence.
We also carry out financial investigation work. We use our many years of experience in financial investigation work both to set the terms of the initial scope of work and to know when to adjust it as necessary, should the position change.
Anti-bribery due diligence can help purchasers to manage the financial, legal, reputational and ethical risk of investments and commercial transactions more effectively. The due diligence process is designed to discover, or determine the likelihood of both current and historical bribery in the target company. It is also an important component in demonstrating compliance with international anti-corruption legislative standards.
At CA Tsialoupis & Co, we can help companies engaging in a merger, acquisition or investment to conduct appropriate risk-based anti-corruption due diligence on prospective targets, or to prepare themselves for such enquiries. Where adequate information is not available pre-closure, we can work quickly to carry out full due diligence to assess existing bribery or corruption in the target post-completion. Similarly, we can work with those involved in project finance transactions to identify and address the risk of bribery and corruption before and during the life of a project. We have a wealth of experience in helping companies to acquire targets and make investments in jurisdictions and industry sectors which are considered high-risk from a corruption perspective.
