Due Diligence

When a business is undertaking a merger, acquisition and property transfer, it is imperative to understand exactly what the deal is, the risks involved and whether it fits in the existing business strategy and portfolio. The due diligence process of investigating and understanding the above parameters is especially important when looking at deals within the environmental, health and safety (EHS) sphere.

RSK’s EHS due diligence services support national and international customers in identifying and monetising risks; supporting value for vendors or price point negotiations or reductions for acquirers on transactions; and recognising the opportunities for future performance improvements or value creation.

Review Due Diligence

More than 25 years of experience

RSK has been providing specialist due diligence services in EHS and engineering-led support for more than 25 years. The level of investigation is tailored to the needs of each proposed transaction. The due diligence team works with direct company investors, technical advisers, legal counsels, finance organisations and the legal sector to manage liabilities, protect the value of investments and develop opportunities to create value in a transaction.

The support offered by this service implements solutions to enhance investment returns by helping clients move from basic compliance through to a more mature proposition of value enhancement for continual improvement or to protect asset value.

Protecting, identifying and enhancing transactions

Understanding the concerns of clients is a key part of successfully delivering due diligence services for transactions. RSK strives to ensure that every client fully comprehends the material risks of a deal to enable them to decide how to proceed. This enables clients to either protect asset value and help ensure the process runs smoothly or to identify the material risks and monetise said risks for successful price reduction and indemnity provision (working with the legal team). Either of these paths will contribute to the overall decision making about whether to proceed with the transaction.

RSK also recognises the additional concerns for clients such as tight deadlines, budget constraints and the need for highly technical support, so has built a flexible and experienced approach to deal with these concerns as they appear.

Unlocking development potential

To assist clients in truly understanding their proposed deal, the RSK ESG Liabilities Dashboard is used. This visualises a transaction through a series of heat and cost maps that guide clients to the significant liabilities and costs to aid price and warranty or indemnity negotiations.
As part of RSK’s delivery model and technical assurance programme for major clients, its project managers have the support of the group centre of excellence. This is a group of in-house experts in multiple disciplines who support key areas of compliance and discipline themes, including agriculture, airports, oil and gas, renewables, water and regulated assets, chemicals, real estate, finance institutions and waste.

Guaranteed quality of service

Experienced local staff from across RSK’s pan-European network operate as a single due-diligence team, thus guaranteeing the same quality of service for a commercially focused product. Liabilities are identified and prioritised, and any corrective measures are priced accurately. RSK’s experience in this area has led to it becoming a preferred supplier for many multinational clients wanting to ensure the same level of service applies across their business network.
