Operational Due Diligence
Transforming deals by unlocking hidden value
Newton’s due diligence work goes far beyond the traditional approach. We work with buyers and sellers to help ensure that a target company’s operations, capability and projections are realistic and achievable, and opportunities and risks have been correctly identified.
Our broad, cross-sector experience and analytical skills enable us to identify, justify and quantify unforeseen EBITDA and cash release opportunities, examining the entire operational base to uncover hidden deal value. From early stage deal advice, to rapid insight assessments, or full operational due diligence reporting, our operational insight delivers buyers and sellers a competitive advantage – and visibility of where a 150-450 basis point EBITDA margin improvement will
A broad scope of work
Our involvement in advising on deals and performance improvement is wide and varied. We help reduce costs and working capital requirements by increasing efficiency, improving yields and streamlining processes. We improve delivery performance through better work in progress management, and stock and process control. We increase capacity and avoid or reduce capital expenditure requirements by improving the performance of existing equipment and machinery. Our work identifies and maximises lost opportunities by ensuring quality and regulatory compliance. We determine the cost saving benefits of rationalisation and implement consolidation programmes, and we assess management skills, qualities and capabilities to drive operational performance.
