Due Diligence

Each transaction brings its own set of potential exposures to both buyers and sellers. Whether your proposed deal is strategic or financial in nature, it’s essential that you uncover the accounting, tax and IT information critical to the transaction and identify items of importance so you can act with confidence during negotiations.

With a unique blend of investigative, analytic and financial skills, MFA’s professionals focus on the facts, trends, behaviors and risks that are critical to the success of your deal. Our due diligence services for buyers provide a full picture of the target business including any risks related to corporate governance, financial reporting and the accounting environment in general. And for companies contemplating the sale of their business, our “self-due diligence” services provide a fair and objective assessment of your company prior to going to market.
