Based on a set of well-defined criteria, we set out to identify suitable acquisition targets through accessing numerous industry database, as well as tapping into our proprietary export network.

Next, we will reach out to the owners/key personnel of the short-listed targets. Engaging in Q&A sessions provides deeper insights into targets’ operations, challenges, and opportunities. This aids in understanding their business model, market position, and competitive advantages to ensure alignment with your company’s acquisition criteria.

During due diligence, we examine a company's financial history, projected performance, and compliance, reviewing statements, contracts, industry reports, and key documents.
