MERGER & ACQUISITIONS PROCUREMENT DUE DILIGENCE
Procurement due diligence whilst evaluating a potential acquisition is a complex task and often needing to be done within extremely tight timeframes. Having the confidence in the due diligence is vital to the long-term viability of the deal. This is where using specialist resources is critical, we at August Consulting can apply our in-depth knowledge and experience into the analysis. We know where to look for both potential value that could be released or drawing out key risks and issues that may be inherent in the deal.
Do not underestimate the value that can be derived from procurement in future turnarounds, specifically if the third party spend is significant on the balance sheet, and the current procurement capability is limited or of low maturity.
Understanding the risks related to current contractual arrangements is also key, specifically if the company has locked themselves into long term agreements with unfavourable terms and pricing.
