A Holistic View of the Target’s Operation

We scrutinize and analyze the target’s internal control structures, facility operations, manufacturing sites, executive teams, and financial reporting practices. This holistic view of the target naturally complements your acquisition team’s strategic and financial savvy, ensuring only the best candidates garner serious attention.

Cyber Risk Profile

We assess the organization’s cyber risk profile, including the ability of the organization to detect and respond to cybercrime incidents. Additionally, we can help the fund develop ongoing monitoring procedures to help ensure their investment in the portfolio company is protected from cyber risk.
