Preparations for commercial due diligence

A major private equity investor was evaluating a potential acquisition of a communications platform provider. Before direct access could be given to the target company through a formal due diligence process, Northstream was engaged to perform a study regarding the overall market ecosystem, size and growth potential, pricing dynamics and competitive threats.

The study served as input to the investor’s Investment Committee and enabled the Committee to better understand the market fundamentals and make an educated decision whether to pursue the target.
