Pre - Due Diligence
At Crane Ridge , we use the Beneish M Score which is a tool used to identify potential earnings manipulation by analyzing various financial ratios.
It helps auditors, investors, and lenders detect companies that may be issuing misleading financial reports.
This allows stakeholders to make informed decisions based on reliable financial information.
If the Beneish M Score is good, then we develop a Capital Investment Model which will focuses on analyzing revenue and cost of sales to assess the feasibility and profitability of a deal before conducting a full due diligence process.
This preliminary evaluation helps stakeholders determine whether it is worthwhile to proceed with a comprehensive due diligence analysis.
By considering key factors such as revenue and cost of sales, the model provides an initial assessment of the deal's potential and guides decision-making processes early on.
The Due Diligence Model is an essential tool for assessing risks, opportunities, and areas of improvement in a business or investment. It enables stakeholders to make well-informed decisions through a comprehensive understanding of all relevant factors.
Through the process of due diligence, potential stakeholders can identify and address risks, negotiate favorable terms, and ensure that the investment aligns with their strategic objectives.
The Due Diligence Model plays a critical role in the decision-making process, providing valuable insights that support informed and careful investment decisions.
Our due diligence process follows a thorough and comprehensive evaluation of various aspects of a business or investment opportunity.
We carefully examine the financial, legal, operational, and commercial aspects to ensure all relevant information is thoroughly analyzed prior to making any decisions.
