MSI has provided due diligence support to multinational clients from the financial services sector.
Investment Due Diligence Assessment
A European private equity fund was considering an investment in an established technology company that had been founded by a group of Russian scientists. Prior to making such an investment, the client's internal risk management division required the conduct of enhanced due diligence on the principals running the startup.
MSI analysts created detailed profiles of the company's ownership, verified initial funding, and assessed the organization's current financial status, customer base, operations and infrastructure. A range of sources were consulted to support the due diligence including primary research in Russia and secondary research through subscription-based and other Internet sources.
The inquiry confirmed for the client that the technology firm would be a sound investment based on the company's proven track record, consistent revenue growth, and strong management team. The client was able to make an informed investment decision and capitalize on a lucrative investment opportunity.
