Due diligence service launches to assist M&A
27 January 2020
A Due Diligence solution has been developed by procurement, supply chain and logistics consultancy SCALA, that aims to reduce the business costs associated with M&A activity.
These services can help to identify mission-critical issues, omissions or errors that weaken or invalidate the reasons for purchase, as well as clarify the current and potential future state of a purchase.
Drawing heavily upon SCALA’s decades of expertise in business improvement projects and change management, the Due Diligence service offers a simple, operational approach that removes a great deal of the risk from M&A, says SCALA. Through this, businesses will see improvements in a number of areas, including profitability, service levels, systems and processes.
Nigel Smith, executive director at SCALA, with direct responsibility for M&A, said: “Given the challenges presented by an uncertain business landscape, we wanted to offer our clients a reliable way to mitigate the risks involved with M&A activity and, throughout our 19 years of operation as a long-term partner to clients, business improvement has always been among the specialisms we’re most proud of.”
