  • Due Diligence

    When you are buying a business, it is essential that you conduct due diligence. The nature of the transaction, the type of products and services offered by the company, and the scope of the target company’s business operations dictate the breadth of the investigation. Financial and legal advisors are obvious participants during the process, but transactions often also require assistance from other professionals in a wide variety of fields to investigate and advise on such issues as: environmental matters; patent or other intellectual property review; foreign tax, accounting, or legal questions; privacy, data management, and security matters; and new or evolving technologies. If you do not conduct proper due diligence, you may later stumble into serious or even devastating problems, or you may pay an inflated price for the business.

    We have the expertise and we very well know how to conduct a due diligence examination, what to look for, how to spot red flags, and how to uncover hidden issues that sellers might not want you to know. There have been instances where the information learned through due diligence lead to termination of the deal or a substantial alteration of the material terms.

    Due diligence is not just for business buyers and investors; it is often no less essential for business sellers and companies that are seeking to raise financing. Sellers and companies raising capital will learn from this book how to conduct due diligence on your own firm, how to uncover issues that might scare off buyers or investors, and how to solve lingering problems before commencing a significant business transaction.

    We provide you the due diligence road map that we developed through our experience in transactions running the gamut from the acquisition of family run businesses to multimillion-dollar private companies, private equity transactions, and commercial real estate projects.

    Most entrepreneurs and investors recognize the importance of conducting due diligence in preparation for the purchase of securities or the merger of companies. The types of business deals for which it is routine that at least one of the parties conduct due diligence include the following:
    • A loan transaction
    • Purchase of a business or its assets
    • Purchase of a company (whether a merger or business buyout)
    • Purchase of stock or interests in a company, such as with a private placement
    • Purchase of real estate
    Other business transactions in which the need to conduct due diligence is equally important yet may be overlooked include the following:
    • Purchasing a right to operate a franchise from the franchisor
    • Starting a company with a partner or partners
    • Licensing a product, services, technology, or intellectual property from a third party
    • Licensing a product, services, technology, or intellectual property to a third party
    • Entering into a joint venture
    • Engaging a third party to design and/or develop a product, service, or technology
    • Engaging a third party to manufacture or provide a product, service, or technology
    • Entering into various types of contracts that are crucial to your business

    The above lists demonstrate that due diligence investigations are not restricted solely to decisions about whether to buy or invest in a business or purchase real estate; rather, they apply to a broad array of prospective business transactions. Moreover, the process is not confined to assuring the interested party of the legal and financial soundness of the transaction; rather, it extends to providing the interested party a sufficient level of comfort regarding the cornerstones of the business being investigated—the company; its products, services, assets and operations; the appropriate value of the company and/or its assets and the potential transaction; and the personnel who are essential to the success of the potential business relationship.

    At Sun Management, we consider each assignment is unique and we offer customized due diligence services to anyone who is buying a business, selling a business, investing in a startup or emerging company, or entering into a major agreement with another company.

  • Business and Company Valuation

    “How much is the value of this business?” This question is not one that can be easily answered. The answer depends on various factors like economic factors (these can be local, regional, national, and international), the premise and standard of value selected, appropriate valuation method applied, and interest being valued, to name just a few factors.

    Valuation has significance in different areas of the financial world. It has relevance in portfolio management, mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, legal and tax purposes. 

    Valuation plays a vital role in corporate finance. The wealth maximization principle of corporate finance is embedded in the objective of maximization of firm value. The value of a firm is directly related to the firm’s financing, investment, and dividend decisions. Valuation also plays a critical role in corporate finance for financing decisions to raise funds for investment purposes. The pricing of IPOs is also determined by using an appropriate method and by following the valuation process. Valuations of private companies are many times required for tax or legal reasons. In portfolio management, the role of valuation is integral in fundamental analysis in which the true value of any firm can be related to the financial characteristics of its cash flows in terms of growth, riskiness, and timings.

    Valuation plays a crucial role in merger and acquisition (M&A) analysis. Determining the value of target business for acquisition is an important step in the due diligence process of M&A. The bidding company has to decide on a fair value for the target business before making the bid, and the target business has to decide a reasonable value for the offer made. Before valuing a company, one must know the purpose of the valuation. There are four basic purposes for valuing a business; tax, litigation, transaction and regulatory. The purpose of the valuation will affect the assumptions and methodologies used to determine value.


    There are many reasons to have a closely held business valued, including:
    • Mergers and acquisitions
    • Liquidation proceedings
    • Collateral valuations
    • Shareholder transactions
    • Capital infusions
    • Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs)
    • Buy & sell agreements
    • Fairness opinions
    • Expert testimony/litigation support
    • Purchase price allocations
    • Banks – loan applications
    • Employee benefit plans
    • Estate planning and taxation

    Value is primarily linked to financial performance, but there are many other factors that affect value too. Our role is to provide an objective based business valuation. Whatever is your valuation requirement, whether raising funds or selling your business or entering into any agreement, we shall work hands in hands with you to fairly value your business. We also use our expert knowledge of the industry and vast experience in particular sectors to provide you the best valuation services.

    Improving profit is the number one objective of business leaders, yet most do not truly understand how to move beyond the basics when it comes to cost reduction for profit improvement.

Profit Building provides a better approach, one that focuses on profit improvement as a stand-alone process, demonstrating how an organization can achieve its goals to improve profitability and reduce cost.

  • Business Turnaround and Regeneration

    Many of the businesses, even the most successful ones, run out of room to grow and / or fall into red from the black. Faced with this unpleasant reality, they are compelled to revive themselves periodically. The potential consequences are dire for any organization that fails to revive itself in time.

    Companies fail to revive themselves not necessarily because they are bad at fixing what’s broken, but because they wait much too long before repairing the deteriorating bulwarks of the company. That is, they invest most of their energy managing to the contours of their existing operations—the financial S curve in which sales of a successful new offering build slowly, then ascend rapidly, and finally taper off—and not nearly enough energy creating the foundations of successful new businesses. Because of that, they are left scrambling when their core markets begin to stagnate. 

    Too often, companies attempt to survive without modifying their behavior—an approach which most always ends in tragedy. Sometimes, companies delay too long waiting for a clearer picture of what should be done—another disaster. Occasionally, too much change is introduced too soon—a tactic which brings more confusion than progress. Other companies approach the turnaround process more systematically and achieve better results. Superior methods can save the firm. Inferior methods, employed at critical times, can destroy it.

    The signs of decline indicate slippage in the company's financial and competitive performance. The warning signals present during the onset of decline frequently occur in one or more of seven basic families of problems which are easy to detect:
    • Liquidity problems including frequent cash shortages, borrowing levels up to collateral limits, or cash-on-demand status with many vendors
    • Profit problems such as ongoing losses in the general business or chronic losses in a main segment
    • Collection problems including an unusually large number of disputed balances or frequent sales to a customer base which is not equipped to pay
    • Quality problems and other product problems resulting in low levels of customer acceptance
    • Employee problems including attrition of high-caliber people, low morale, high rates of absenteeism, or low productivity
    • Organizational problems including a confusing organizational structure, dispersed responsibility, or inappropriate staffing for key positions
    • Ethical problems including the falsification of financial statements, excessive executive compensation, unreasonable perquisites, theft, chemical dependency, or improper supplier-purchaser relationships

    Companies rarely fail because of any one single cause. Inept company management is certainly a factor in some situations. You know all the common reasons: the slowing economy, the government policies, the marketing clutter, the low customer confidence, problems with execution, misreading of consumer tastes etc. You also know you got to do something, and something fast, to turn your business that’s bleeding into one that not only survives but thrives!

    To get your company back on track, we can help you to discover the crucial pointers that can determine if your business needs a turnaround. And if yes, we are there to help you reviewing, planning, developing, communicating, implementing, and measuring. Get your cash flow in gear. Discover the areas of leverage every company has. Finally, know how to beat the odds and revive.
