Due Diligence & Quality of Earnings

亚当·J. 古德会计师

The way a company structures the finances and operations for a transaction can often have a dramatic effect on the success of a proposed business deal. The purpose of conducting a due diligence review is to minimize any unexpected developments that could occur with the proposed transaction and to maximize transaction value.

At Schneider Downs, our seasoned professionals have the knowledge and experience necessary to assist buyers, 卖家, 投资者, private equity firms and lenders in organizing and completing both buy-side and sell-side due diligence reviews. The time and investment devoted to conducting a due diligence review often prevents surprises, purchase price disputes and litigation matters. At Schneider Downs, we are here to support your efforts according to your specific needs and provide you with a timely and accurate assessment of your proposed transaction.

Quality of Earnings

The goal of a quality of earnings engagement is to present a clear picture to the buyer of a target company’s financial condition. Our senior business analysts will focus not only on the balance sheet and income statements as presented by the target, but also the underlying quality of those statements. A quality of earnings analysis may be conducted by taking a quantitative and qualitative approach to evaluating the amounts presented to acquire a thorough understanding of EBITDA, working capital and potential adjustments.

In the Business Advisory group here at Schneider Downs, our experience supports these claims. We have found that companies in the market to sell who have subjected themselves to rigorous sell-side financial due diligence have had better success in closing deals than companies that have not. 了解更多
