Commercial Due Diligence (CDD) is an essential part of the investment decision
making process as future profitability is impacted by the market
environment. CDD provides significant insight into the current standing and
future prospects of the company. However, time constraints, a lack of internal
resource and/or sector expertise frequently prevent the process being undertaken
in-house. Alternative Minds deliver the ability to work to tight deadlines
coupled with the level of experience, professionalism and confidentiality
required for valued CDD projects.
Our CDD projects deliver a comprehensive analysis and thorough, detailed
assessment of commercial and market realities,
gleaned from qualitative & quantitive B2B and/or B2C customer/supplier market
research, multi-sourced secondary research and potentially confidential
interviews with stakeholders.
We examine in detail the business plan, market assumptions & projections,
customer base and forecast ROI, identifying all underlying assumptions they are
based on and then compare these to our own tested results, before
undertaking the full analytical assessment and pragmatic forecasting.
We quickly identify and highlight potential issues and keep our clients fully
to ensure the results provide all the information needed.
Results are delivered in a clear and as concise as possible report which aids
decision making. Even if the final decision is not to invest, our
clients gain an independent, critical analysis of key issues they face.
