Using valuation diligence to uncover deal "blind spots"



A full one-third of transactions fail to return the cost of capital and end up destroying shareholder value. The top reasons for transaction failure often boil down to a lack of focus on the gap between market and intrinsic value. Some of the most common traps include:
  • Loss of focus on initial value creation logic
  • Inherent bias caused by conflicts of interest
  • Improper application of finance theory and math and logic errors in valuation models
  • Premiums unsupported by cash flows
