How We Support You

Buy-side due diligence

We provide our clients with the necessary insights to evaluate potential acquisition targets and make informed investment decisions. Our full range of buy-side commercial due diligence services include business performance reviews, market and competitor assessments, customer referencing, pricing due diligence and business plan assessments/value creation reviews. We cover main deals and are also able to put together focused scopes for bolt-on work.

Example Case Study

Teneo has completed hundreds of buy-side commercial due diligence engagements for PE clients and other investors. This has resulted in the successful acquisition of numerous assets across a range of end-sectors.

Portfolio value creation

Teneo supports clients in unlocking value creation opportunities post-acquisition, aligning commercial resources with high-impact opportunities. We focus on driving EBITDA growth as the key outcome of all our engagements through both volume and value levers. Our work is developed with an exit strategy in mind and covers areas such as pricing and packaging, value creation planning, product and market strategy, sales effectiveness, CoS reduction and operating model redesign.

Example Case Study

Teneo has supported investors of all sizes in maximizing the value of their portfolio through both organic and acquisitive growth strategies. These engagements have ranged from strategic advice to long-term operational support to drive value across our clients’ portfolios.

Sell-side due diligence

Teneo supports sell-side processes by developing thorough commercial due diligence reports which help clients maximize their sale value. We work with businesses we know and respect which allows us to build credible reports that articulate resilient positioning and future growth potential. We provide an evidence-based review of the asset’s performance, product offering, market and competitive positioning to present a compelling proposition for prospective buyers.

Example Case Study

Teneo has completed dozens of vendor-commercial due diligences for both Management and PE-owned businesses to support a successful sale process. We have worked with assets of all sizes ranging from mid-market firms to large-cap deals valued over £1bn.

M&A strategy

Alongside traditional diligence capabilities, Teneo provides M&A strategy support to companies pursuing strategic acquisitions. We conduct a comprehensive review to identify adjacent markets a company could enter and develop a potential list of M&A targets. 

Example Case Study

Teneo has supported hundreds of investors and their portfolio assets in successfully defining and executing M&A strategies. We work with our clients from initial opportunity identification, through target prioritization and detailed due diligence.
