Our specific areas of expertise are as follows.
- Commercial due diligence: we have developed a proven methodology for market assessments and commercial due diligence assignments. We help our clients to evaluate potential synergies, as well as the realistic upsides and downsides to their business plans.
- Digital services: our experts support telecoms operators and financial institutions in identifying the value of moving into the digital space.
- Mid-market financial sponsors: our team delivers valuable pre-deal insights to help mid-market financial sponsors to shape their investment thesis and to provide comfort on areas of perceived risks to the market. During the diligence process we cover commercial and technical streams, and provide Investment-Committee-ready materials through regular engagements with the deal team.
- Technical due diligence: our rigorous technical due diligence methodology allows us to deliver valuable benefits to clients during corporate finance transactions in the telecoms, media and technology (TMT) space, often on short timescales. We can identify any gaps between the business and market plan requirements and the current and planned network and support systems capability in terms of functionality, quality of service, capacity, resilience and geographical coverage.
