- compliance (Sarbanes-Oxley, labor and sales)
- HR plan transition issues and costs
- pension plan funding
- tax and regulatory issues.
The process of identifying the financial risks, and understanding the value of the acquisition is what the due diligence process is all about.
We have heard from many M & A specialists that many times the accounting staff of the Selling party hurt, delay or damage the sale due to their desire to protect their jobs. Substandard accounting staffs may be at fault. Many times it is un-incentivized accounting staffs. The reason may be just under-staffing.
Whatever the reason, the experienced Consulting Chief Financial Officers of SBA * Consulting can assist either party, making the due diligence process as complete and efficient, in terms of a time-table, as possible. Our Consulting CFO’s comprise CPA’s, CIA’s, MBA’s and experienced managerial accountants that have an average of 25 years in the field.
