Sell-Side Vendor Due
When a strategic or financial sponsor owner is selling a business, they seek to maximize value and certainty of closure while minimizing the length of time it takes to sell the business. An important contributor to achieving these goals is enabling an efficient buyer diligence process. Specifically, the more quickly and compellingly the value proposition can be conveyed to the prospective buyer, the more likely it is that the seller will realize an attractive purchase price.
RSAdvisors helps owners run effective sales processes by leveraging its world-class buy-side diligence and strategy development capabilities to generate a sell-side Vendor Due-Diligence (VDD) report on the asset for sale. These reports provide an independent, objective perspective on the asset being sold and contain the key market, competitive positioning and contractual / programmatic insights necessary for the buyer to reach an informed decision. During the preparation of these reports, RSAdvisors works seamlessly with the owners, management team and financial advisor to both ensure consistency with the overall sell-side themes and maintain appropriate objectivity. We actively support Management during the sales process and provide briefings to prospective investors.
