Financial due diligence

All businesses involved in an acquisition, as buyers or sellers, need to ensure that the financial information they hold is as accurate as possible, not only to prevent paying too much (or in a seller’s case receiving too little) but also to ensure that their governance and risk management objectives are met.

  • From the buyer’s perspective the quality of information available about a potential acquisition determines the ultimate success of a transaction. Without ensuring that the financial statements about a business reflect the reality, a deal may deliver less than first impressions suggest.
  • To ensure an efficient sales process, vendors need to present their financial information to potential buyers as transparently as possible. An independent assessment provides potential buyers with certainty about the business and the nature of its cashflow.
  • Financial due-diligence can help to identify and focus attention on the factors in the business that will be critical to its future success.
  • Public company boards’ governance responsibilities require them to ensure that all steps possible have been taken to identify any problematic issues in a potential acquisition CC Chokshi Advisors can help by enhancing the buyer's understanding of the target business and

CC Chokshi Advisors can help by enhancing the buyer's understanding of the target business and therefore increasing the likelihood of the deal achieving its objectives. We can help buyers to identify and understand critical success factors and the characteristics of its cash flow so that informed acquisition decisions can be made.

Carve out services

Carve-out transactions—the divestiture or sale of a division or business unit—have to clear a higher hurdle for success than typical mergers and acquisitions because they are more complex. Yet they are worth the extra effort.

Carve-outs can lead to lower premiums and higher gains for buyers, and for sellers they increase the likelihood of successfully closing the deal. Capturing these advantages, however, requires looking beyond the financials to understand the challenges associated with the transition.

Even in uncertain times, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) can be a source of value. In particular, carve-out deals, when strategically aligned, can unlock value for sellers and provide buyers with a platform for growth.

Carve-outs are attractive for a number of reasons. For buyers, they promise greater returns on investment, while eliminating the need to acquire non-strategic assets and business lines in order to obtain the desired assets. Because carve-outs are typically the domain of strategic buyers, there is usually less competition with financial buyers. For sellers, carve-outs are a way to manage activities more effectively.

Valuation services

Understanding the value of your business or business assets provides you with the means to preserve or grow that value. Valuations are used for many reasons, including investment analysis, capital budgeting, purchase price allocation, financial reporting, fresh-start accounting, taxable events, and many other business and legal purposes such as litigation support.

Legal and Indirect Tax Advisory

The complexity in Indian indirect tax legislations, and the increasing level of overlap and correlation between different indirect taxes pose a planning and compliance challenge to businesses operating in India. This challenge is heightened by the need to ensure consistency between positions taken in relation to direct and indirect taxes (e.g. setting up / amending appropriate transfer pricing policies given the contrary perspectives of the income tax and customs authorities) An emerging area of focus is export controls, which requires exporters of certain goods to comply with documentation / licensing requirements.

Across business sectors, we assist clients in interpreting and applying legal provisions, developing tax optimal structures, and setting up accounting and reporting systems.

We represent clients before various authorities, do compliance reviews, assist in contract drafting, etc.
