Exceptional Acquisitions Overview

DSG’s Exceptional Acquisitions © is a rapid assessment of people, process and technology capabilities that evaluate business value prior to acquisition of a business.  The assessment also allows buy-side clients to manage thorough assessment of their business processes and key performance metrics.
  • The EA tool and process utilizes easy-to-use process specific surveys to capture both current performance and improvement opportunity perspectives from the people who manage and deliver these processes on a daily basis.  
  • In addition, the EA includes an ‘Executive Survey’ designed to assess high-level views on performance alignment and direction as to where process improvement would be required once the business had been acquired.  
The EA system can be used as a stand-alone assessment or as part of a more comprehensive DueDiligence process. More specifically, EA is designed for organizations looking for the following:
  • Rapid Health Check: A fast, efficient, low cost starting point for understanding how your processes are performing today
  • Improvement Areas: Feedback from within the organization on current performance and where opportunity for improvement exists
  • Comparatives: Perspectives on what ‘high maturity’ organizations have done to achieve that status and how your organization compares today
  • Value Enhancers: As additional input to an improvement initiative towards sale or financing of your company “What are the potential turn-offs?”
  • Improvement Path: A high-level roadmap for operational improvement – What gets fixed? At what cost?

Output is designed to provide feedback on process maturity, improvement opportunities and alignment of opportunities to overall business goals.

Why Conduct Buy-Side Due Diligence?

Buy-side due diligence is the process of identifying and assessing a business’ real value. Done well, buy-side due diligence can reveal the strengths and weaknesses that buyers will need to uncover prior to the purchase. It also allows the buyer to construct better offer scenarios.
Maximize Shareholder Value
Buy-side advisory services can identify the most profitable business assets and strategies, financial and non-financial to refine and increase shareholder value.

Obtain the Qualitative with the Quantitative Side of the Story
Our proprietary analysis and tool generates customer insights from transaction data to support the buyer deal thesis.

Right Asset Value
Buyers should evaluate the company(asset) with the necessary and unbiased information to drive to an informed decision.

Enhance Corporate Credibility
Being a prepared buyer enhances credibility with sellers. An in-depth buy-side corporate due diligence report showcases the knowledge of the buyer, helps articulate the deal rationale, enables quicker responses by seller to diligence queries, and helps lend credibility to the entire purchase process.

Manage Technology Oversights
Evaluate IT assets, examining them for quality, legal, and security risk. This is critical to ensure the overall worth and viability of the transaction.

Minimize Disruption
Minimizing corporate due diligence to a detailed and controlled process enables the management team to focus on business-as-usual operations.
