OPERATIONAL DUE DILLIGENCE ASSISTANCE FOR CONSOLIDATIONS AND ACQUISITIONS


Complementary to and not a replacement for traditional finance focused due diligence, CPQP Operational Due Diligence assistance takes an in-depth look: data collection, analysis and assessment of the following areas. Once done, a much more complete picture is presented, allowing management to make sound consolidation (or expansion) decisions based on data and analysis of a manufacturer’s operations. CPQP gathers these data from all available sources – usually on site – and provides expert analysis in an easily understood format. Then, a manufacturing plant relocation decision can be made based on data.
