Acquisition audits

Making an external growth project secure

There are numerous risks attached to an external growth project, and they might be overlooked. They must be understood, however, and they can influence a purchaser's final decision. An acquisition audit is a priority when it comes to concluding the following kinds of transaction:

  • Purchases
  • Partial transfers of assets
  • Mergers

Grant Thornton carries out complete corporate acquisition audits. We perform accounting, legal and corporate due diligence, a precious governance tool for managers.

What Grant Thornton can do for you

Grant Thornton's team reviews every project before we suggest various control points, together with a thorough analysis of the risks. Following this due diligence process, we recommend a tailor-made acquisition audit, which may include the following steps:

  • A review and diagnosis of your internal control system and information feedback processes (operational and financial)
  • A social audit
  • A legal audit (review of the Articles of Association, review of the main contracts, etc.)
  • Search for non-values (assets recoverable within less than one year)
  • An impairment test on intangible and financial assets
  • A study of unfunded liabilities
