Commercial Due Diligence

We are a leading adviser to companies and private equity firms on the key commercial issues they face across all stages of the deal cycle.

  • Will our business plan stand up to due diligence?
  • How do we maximise value prior to sale?
  • What are the prospects for the business we are acquiring?
  • Can we have an independent review of the company‚Äôs business plan?

Our global strategy practice numbers more than 1,000 due diligence consultants, each with a specific sector focus enabling rapid diagnosis of key deal issues. Each member of the team can draw on the extensive expertise and the resources of PwC's worldwide industry network of over 195,000 people.

We regularly work alongside our financial and operational due diligence teams. As a result, PwC's conclusions are based on well-researched and integrated views on all aspects of the transaction.

How we can support you

  • Commercial due diligence: we can support you in undertaking buy-side or vendor commercial due diligence in a variety of transaction scenarios including sale processes, acquisitions, and refinancing of both equity and debt. Our independent approach ensures we identify upside potential and risks.
  • Vendor assistance: we help companies prepare a business for sale to drive deal value by assisting management teams from developing their strategy and strategic plans, to writing business plans. Our independent approach challenges management to identify upside potential and mitigate risks.
  • Independent Business Review: we provide commercial insights during independent business reviews for both management teams and banks, typically during distressed situations. Our work helps identify the drivers of value and options for businesses to improve performance to support covenant setting and refinancing terms.
