In a market teeming with investment opportunities, discerning the right choice demands a deep understanding of the potential risks and rewards. Our client, a midcap private-equity firm with a strong ethical foundation, was considering an investment in an FMCG company known for its low-cost products. This company had established a substantial market share, appealing to a broad consumer base through cost-effective strategies. Due to the potential for reputational damage and legal complications arising from undisclosed unethical practices, our client approached us, seeking a comprehensive due diligence investigation.
To address this challenge, we devised a solution grounded in our expertise in corporate intelligence and investigations. The cornerstone of our methodology was engaging with confidential sources to gather deep insights into the company’s operations and culture:
Our approach enabled us to unearth indications of questionable labor standards, including allegations of unpaid overtime work. The confidential insights provided a rich tapestry of information, painting a detailed picture of the potential risks associated with the investment.
Armed with this robust data, we presented our findings to the client, offering them a deep understanding of the target company’s operational landscape. Our investigative due diligence empowered the client to approach the negotiation table with a position of strength, grounded in facts and detailed insights, thereby facilitating a more informed and secure investment decision. Through our meticulous methodology, we safeguarded our client from a potentially precarious investment, steering them towards a path of ethical and sustainable growth.
