Buy Side Assistance

Pre Deal Evaluation

This is the preliminary appraisal of a potential target entity. This is an early enough stage to influence bidding strategy, transaction structure, valuation, and negotiation process. Poor evaluation prior to an approach is usually very costly, and early evaluation can help identify and manage any potential risks or pitfalls in the deal and thereby reduce abortive costs.

This process is typically carried out by obtaining and analyzing public domain information. Pre-deal evaluation is relevant to any client who is interested in acquiring or investing in another entity (Target) but either;  

  •   has not contacted the target,  or
  •   has not yet had access to the target, or
  •   is not yet ready to engage in full scale due diligence


Financial Due Diligence

The engagement team will perform an open book investigative analysis of the Target. The Target management team shall assist the engagement team in assessing the key issues facing the business and the primary assumptions of the deal drivers in realizing the value creation logic of the acquisition.


Sell Side Assistance

Successful investments are about four key things:

  1. Clear understanding of what you are selling, based on a detailed evaluation of the business
  2.   Thorough planning and preparation, from initiation through post closing
  3.   Clear articulation of the value
  4.   Effort commitment equivalent to an acquisition

MBSL will assist in the process of preparing a business for sale. During Vendor Assistance, the engagement team will engage in evaluating disposal options and will cover a broad range of activities from compiling information to advisory assistance across the disposal process.

This will help to reduce the erosion of value during the process while increases the probability of delivering a successful divestment with much comfort to the vendor to maintain control of the process with a value realization backed with logic.

Vender Due-Diligence

What is Vendor Due Diligence? Vendor Due Diligence (VDD), is due diligence initiated by a seller to assist with its proposed sale of a business by providing information on the business for the benefit of potential purchasers. 
The outcome will be an unbiased statement of facts about the company that shall benefit the potential buyers to have an independent assessment about the asset to be sold.
