Due Diligence

CRL works with investors and lenders to make better deal decisions by performing due diligence, assessing revenue growth and cost reduction opportunities to determine a target’s full potential, and providing a picture of the opportunity.

Lenders and buyers have deal discipline that guides their decision. CRL understands this discriminating mindset and brings its outstanding forensic skills into play along with analytical rigor, independence, broad industry experience and functional expertise to the painstaking work of vetting a prospect.

Why CRL?

CRL digs deep into the financial data analyzing all working capital components and their cycles and impact on cash flow.  All other Balance Sheet items are reviewed for FMV, remaining life, impact on cash flow.  This is followed by an analysis of the operating financials with a preference to use activity based reporting and analysis when providing activity based forward looking information.

Before we begin this detailed analysis we obtain an overview by analyzing data that includes the following:

  • sustainable economic earnings,
  • historical sales and operating expense trends,
  • historical working capital needs, and
  • key assumptions used in management’s forecast.
