Soft due diligence delivers hard results for agribusinesses

Hard DD follows a pro-forma, lookback approach, usually involving legal and financial information on a target. While this formal approach is important, it usually provides very little insight into the future operational or commercial capacity and value generation potential of the target. The addition of Technical Due Diligence (TDD) and Commercial Due Diligence (CDD), which include the focus on soft areas of the target, should provide much deeper operational and strategic insights. This is particularly critical in the domain of private firms, which are off-limits from the scrutiny of publicly quoted exchanges or stock markets.

The primary objectives of DD include:

  • To identify key internal & external risks
  • To validate & support valuation process
  • To identify integration issues & requirements
