Help with Purchasing a Business

Business Purchase Due Diligence

Looking to purchase an established business? First and foremost, it’s crucial to understand what you are purchasing, analyse the financials, and do your due diligence before finalising the purchase. Our service ensures that you have a clear understanding of the business you are considering, its financial performance, potential risks, and expected returns on investment and equity. 

Why 8 Collective?

We can help you to:

Understand what you are purchasing: Our due diligence process involves a thorough analysis of the target business. We examine its operations, market position, assets, liabilities, contracts, and legal structure. By assessing these factors, we provide you with a comprehensive overview of the business, enabling you to make an informed decision.

Understand Return on Investment: We analyse the financial projections and historical performance of the business to help you assess its potential return on investment. Our experts evaluate factors such as revenue growth, profitability, cash flow generation, and capital requirements, providing you with insights into the expected financial gains from your investment.

Understand Return on Equity: In addition to ROI, we also help you understand the return on equity (ROE) that the business can generate. ROE measures the profitability of the investment relative to the shareholder’s equity. By analyzing the financial statements and capital structure, we assist you in determining the potential returns for the equity invested in the business.

Verify the financial performance of the business: Our team of financial experts meticulously reviews the financial statements, tax records, and other relevant financial documents to verify the accuracy and reliability of the reported numbers. We analyse key financial ratios, trends, and benchmarks to assess the financial health and stability of the business.

Potential Key Business Risks: Our due diligence process includes identifying and evaluating potential risks associated with the target business. We assess factors such as market competition, regulatory environment, industry trends, supplier relationships, customer base, and key personnel. By understanding these risks, you can make informed decisions and develop risk mitigation strategies.

Business Performance Review: As part of our service, we conduct a comprehensive review of the business’s overall performance. This includes evaluating its market position, competitive advantage, growth prospects, operational efficiency, and management team. Our analysis provides you with a holistic view of the business’s strengths and weaknesses, enabling you to assess its long-term viability and growth potential.

WE'RE APPROACHABLE. We're Knowledgeable. We're Forward-Thinking.
