Due Diligence Services
For investors and companies seeking to take part in high-technology ventures, it is important that sufficient analysis is undertaken to ensure that the technological base of the prospect is firm.
Plextek works with clients to assess proposed products & business plans for both technical and market realism, drawing on our significant commercial experience and the technical knowledge of our engineers and specialists.
Due diligence assignments typically take a number of forms, from a short company visit and initial verbal report, through to a full investigation and technical audit leading to a detailed report prior to final investment.
Plextek is able to continue supporting investors after each investment stage by performing on-going evaluation of the target company's progress.
- Plextek was selected by a UK FTSE 100 company to undertake due diligence on an acquisition target operating in the wireless test equipment segment. Our report highlighted a major market/regulatory issue that caused the company value to be reassessed. The acquisition proceeded at a significantly reduced price.
- A global venture capital firm utilised Plextek's technical specialists to assess a technology company as part of a second round funding call. We were able to bring detailed knowledge of the market to identify competitors' roadmaps, pricing structures and other commercial factors. Our expertise subsequently led to the target company engaging Plextek to carry out a critical product development.
