Due Diligence When Buying A Business

You’ve gone over the company’s financial statements with a fine-tooth comb, and you’re about to decide whether you should make an offer to purchase the business. Stop right there! When buying businesses, the numbers tell you only half the story—the more obvious half. Every company has hidden assets and liabilities that, although less visible, can significantly impact the risks and benefits of acquiring the business. At a minimum, you should thoroughly research the business's owner, property and physical plant, executive team, employees, products and services, and client base. Laska Company can help you streamline the due diligence process so you can quickly access reliable information about your potential investment.

What to Expect From Laska Company

When you hire our team to help facilitate a business purchase, you can expect us to:

  • Assist you with reasonable skill and care
  • Engage in good faith, honesty, and fair dealing
  • Properly account for money or assets you place in our care
  • Disclose adverse material facts which are, or should be, within our knowledge

Our experienced staff can identify information that would substantially affect the desirability or value of the business to a reasonable person. We can also uncover facts that would indicate the company's inability to fulfill its end of a contractual obligation. As business brokers, we also help you determine what type of company best fits your lifestyle. We'll closely review the income potential of your purchase and see if the company makes sense for your available time and financial resources.
