DYOR (Do Your Own Research)
When you start a business or are looking to be a business partner with someone, the most valuable asset you can have is knowledge.
Due diligence is an important aspect of growing or starting a business and it requires you to dot your I’s and cross your T’s. When faced with a business deal, investment, or partnership, due diligence calls for verification, investigation, and authentication of any information given to you during your business exchange.
All these steps must be completed before approaching any business-related matter. The result of due diligence allows you to make informed decisions rendering you capable of knowing when a business deal is beneficial to you. It also allows for more confidence and reasonable expectations.
Does this only benefit buyers?
The short answer is no. It can benefit sellers as well.
By running the numbers and conducting financial examinations of your company, you can either be pleasantly surprised or disappointed when you find out the market value of your company. Fair market value is essentially how much a price or asset would go for. This assessment is generally done by investment bankers, accountants, attorneys, and other consultant personnel. By having done your due diligence, sellers, buyers, and companies can fully understand the scope of the deal, risks, and whether the deal is worth making.
