Transaction Services

With the right combination of technical knowledge and industry expertise, Aronson’s Financial Advisory Services professionals take the guesswork out of complex M&A transactions. Our flexible and scalable buy-side due diligence process enables our clients to understand:

  • The acquisition target’s historical quality of earnings
  • The sustainability of the target’s historical revenues, earnings and cash flows
  • The quality of the assets being acquired
  • The nature of the liabilities or contingent liabilities that may be assumed
  • The various tax issues that can arise

At Aronson, we have the ability to quickly staff and conduct engagements to meet tight deadlines. Plus, because we understand middle market transactions, our clients often look to us for insightful analysis with respect to tax structuring and purchase price negotiation issues, such as working capital requirements and contingent consideration.

M&A deals are major undertakings that require a thorough due diligence process. But that’s not where the story ends. Aronson stands ready to provide assistance at all stages of the transaction life cycle.
