Multicultural expertise for cross-border transaction

tl_files/case_studies/pic_9.jpgEngagement Rationale: We were engaged by a U.S. firm (“Client Firm”) to perform financial and operational due diligence on a Chinese manufacturer (joint venture between a Hong Kong firm and a U.S. firm) based in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, China. The Client Firm was in negotiations to acquire the Chinese manufacturer.

The Client Firm wanted to better understand the Chinese manufacturer’s business model, performance, operations and relation with its investors in order to define the action plan how to consolidate it after acquisition. We immediately deployed a team to assess the company’s operations and manufacturing capabilities.

Operational Due Diligence

Our team conducted an analysis of the company’s operations.  We focused on equipment and general capital expenditure requirements, management, and potential effects of sales increases on operations.

Key Transaction Issues

We assessed the relationship between the target company and its two investors. Our findings provided insights on efficiency and profitability of current operations and how that may be affected by the transaction.

Our due diligence answered questions and revealed key findings for the Client Firm that gave them the confidence to negotiate and close the transaction on the best terms.
