Commercial due diligence 

Commercial Due Diligence is a comprehensive assessment of a business's marketability, profitability, and competitiveness.

We provide commercial due diligence services to Executive teams as part of our strategic development process. It allows management teams to gain a 360 view of their strengths, weaknesses, and competitiveness from three perspectives.

  1. A Market Perspective

  2. A Customer Perspective (External)

  3. A Business Perspective (Internal)
     

Lighthouse also supports investors, Corporate Development teams and Private Equity firms to assess acquisition opportunities. We help to develop investment cases and validate the risks and opportunities involved with a potential deal.

Commercial Due Diligence

Lighthouse provides commercial diligence services to 
Executive teams, Corporate Development functions and Private Equity firms.

We help our clients to make intelligent investment decisions by providing strategic commercial due diligence that informs the process.

 

We have a deep knowledge of technology businesses and understand what makes them successful. We use this understanding to assess and validate the plans of management and identify the opportunities or barriers they may face. We interview customers to gain their insights and identify the opportunities and barriers they face.

We are known for our X-ray process, which helps our clients to invest wisely by identifying the risks and opportunities they might face along this journey.

Vendor Due Diligence

We also provide our business X-Ray process to support sellers in the exit of their business.

 

Scenarios where vendor diligence is helpful include:
 

  • Disposing of part of the business, whether through a carve-out of business units or by the sale of existing entities.

  • Disposal because of restructuring/re-focusing business activities.

 

A vendor-led commercial due diligence process provides vendors with greater control over their sale process and the timing of sale, which can, in turn, help to secure a higher price for the business.

 

This is achieved by:
 

  • Adding credibility to and validating the facts, figures and information provided in the information memorandum.

  • A more controlled sale process, reducing disruption to the business.

  • Directing the buyer’s research toward the key value drivers, freeing up their time and providing an increased level of trust in what they are buying.

Customer Referencing

We provide customer referencing services to help our clients better understand and gain feedback about their products, services, or overall customer experience.

 

As part of this process, we calculate the Net Promoter Score (NPS), the overall likelihood that a customer will recommend a business, product, or service to a friend or colleague.

 

This process provides invaluable and honest feedback about how customers value a business's product or service. In addition, it helps to align internally held perceptions with direct customer feedback.

Competitor Benchmarking

The analysis of the competitive landscape is an essential step.

 

Our competitor analysis process allows you to identify who the competitors are, what their strengths and weaknesses might be relative to you (the target company). We compare their products and services and assess the barriers for entry for new competitors into different target markets.

Our Value

  • We'll help you understand the competitors.

  • Find out the strengths and weaknesses of the competition. 

  • Understand what competitors are doing better than you are, so that you can plan to improve.

  • Gain an understanding of competitive landscape and market trends.

We Work With the Very Best
