Getting What You Pay For; The Importance of Financial Due Diligence
Scenario A: Our law firm is considering acquiring another law firm in a market that we have been trying to infiltrate.
Scenario B: My client, a sole-practitioner physician, has the opportunity to purchase an interest in a larger medical practice.
Performing financial due diligence for a merger or acquisition involves more than simply reviewing the target financial statements.
· Do the financial statements reasonably reflect the operations of the business?
· Could there be hidden assets or liabilities that are not represented on the balance sheets?
· Are there discrepancies between the financial statements and tax returns?
