PwC’s Financial Due Diligence (FDD) department is a market leader with a large variety of clients. We regularly advise on some of the largest and most complex cross-border deals. We help clients looking to buy a business, sell all or part of their business, refinance or list on stock exchanges through Initial Public Offerings (IPOs). The work that we do helps buyers understand what makes a transaction successful. We thoroughly assess a target company’s financial performance, consider the opportunities and risks, and identify potential deal issues.

The due diligence is performed on the client’s premises or at the office via a virtual data room. You are regularly present at management presentations, expert sessions and customer meetings.
