We assist you :
Due diligence reffers to validation of regulatory and technical inputs into a company's or project's financial evaluation model: What is the depot and future production of a plant? What is the availability rate of a wind park? Is the connection to the electricity grid of a gas-fired power station optimal? Is the expansion or renovation project of a hydroelectric plant suited to the type of fall?
Our experts are capable of simulating a deposit and a productible, estimating past and foreseeable investment amounts, or quantifying the assumptions of availability rates or an investment, replacement or compliance scenario of the equipment on which relies the business activity to be acquired.
The sharp technical expertise of our consultants allows them to put a critical eye on a company's business plan and to manage detailed audits to check the state of its facilities, or to issue an opinion on the quality of its exploitation and maintenance.
This expertise is of the utmost importance to calmly analyze the technical risks of an acquisition, protect our customers by suggesting investment conditionalities, and to feed economic aggregates of the models on which their evaluations are based in a relevant way.
