Almost every financial transaction requires an independent review of the financial and trading position of the target company. The intent behind a due diligence project is to verify the accuracy and veracity of the commercial data reflecting an organisation's financial and commercial health. Without this independent authentication there is ample room for disagreement between all parties involved, especially in the event that results fail to meet expectations. Due diligence requires meticulous attention to detail combined with a forensic, enquiring approach. Lexington has a track record of performing tightly scoped commercial and financial reviews of target companies which concentrate on the matters that make a real difference to the transaction.
