Langtons Corporate Finance has extensive experience in preparing Due Diligence Reports on behalf of financial institutions as well as potential investors and those wishing to acquire a business outright.
We have undertaken work on behalf of such organisations as Barclays Bank, Co-Operative Bank, GE Commercial Finance, HSBC, Lloyds TSB, Merseyside Special Investment Fund, Modus Private Equity, North West Equity Fund, and the Royal Bank of Scotland.
The scope of work to be undertaken can vary significantly from a brief overview to a detailed investigation into any financial aspect of the business and is tailored to the specific circumstances involved.
Langtons can provide the comfort required for those seeking to acquire a business or those providing funding for acquisition, expansion or working capital requirements.
Unlike many firms offering this specialist service, Langtons differentiates itself by the level of senior involvement. In the majority of cases, a Partner or Director performs a significant role in the investigation and analytical appraisal, with support from the team.
The approach adopted by Langtons is not one of the “unwelcome investigator” looking for problems but one of attempting to assist in finalising the financial arrangements by providing the required level of comfort for the funders / investors and also the buyers. In addition, all factual aspects of our reports are confirmed with the principal of the target business prior to the report’s submission in order to avoid any possible misinterpretation. This approach provides users of the service with the knowledge that a “deal” will not be jeopardised by the misunderstanding of the professional causing unnecessary antagonism in potentially delicate situations.
Langtons prides itself on offering a comprehensive service in this specialist area at competitive fee levels.
