Vendor commercial due diligence (VCDD) offers shareholders a strong, fact-based commercial narrative that strengthens their position during a transaction, while buyers benefit from increased transparency.

VCDD helps to articulate a company’s market position and to highlight upside opportunities, providing bidders with confidence and reducing the time the management team needs to devote to the sales process. Our approach to VCDD provides a fact-based assessment and collaboratively develops the investment thesis.

At CIL, our teams of sector experts bring a wealth of experience to each engagement. We conduct a thorough review of a company’s business plan, past and present performance, and competitive positioning. We also identify upsides and potential value creation routes beyond business-as-usual for the buyer to pursue.

Our independent, unbiased reports are highly valued and respected by bidders. By anticipating their needs, educating them on market dynamics and pre-empting their questions, CIL VCDD reports minimize risk and maximize valuation.
