What is Vendor Due Diligence?

Vendor Due Diligence (VDD) represents an examination of a business for sale conducted for the seller to highlight concerns and queries significant to prospective purchasers. It involves the disclosure of financial and tax-related evaluations to the seller, encapsulated in a document that is eventually provided to interested buyers. This process affords buyers an immediate and comprehensive insight into the financial health and progress of the company.

Vendor due diligence involves a thorough, unbiased evaluation of a subsidiary, business unit, or specific line of business, focusing on its market position and future outlook. This process effectively constructs a compelling narrative, facilitating prospective purchasers in initiating their due diligence efforts.

Distinct from conventional due diligence, vendor due diligence offers sellers an advantage by adopting a potential buyer’s perspective. It allows interested parties to understand the inherent value of an asset and its compatibility with their existing strategic goals and operations. Consultants specializing in vendor due diligence at IMC assist clients in identifying and mitigating risks and resolving business concerns that could lower the asset’s worth or dissuade potential buyers.

Vendor Due Diligence Process Overview

Step 1

The vendor must contact an external party to conduct due diligence on their account. This step must be finalized before the business is put up for sale. It's crucial to appoint an impartial and skilled external auditor to review the accounts objectively. Vendors initiate the process by engaging a third-party auditor to review their accounts, ensuring this audit is completed before the business is put up for sale to maintain impartiality and accuracy.

Step 2

After the audit concludes, the external auditor creates a Vendor Due Diligence Report (VDDR). This report is then distributed to all pertinent stakeholders for examination. Following the dissemination of the report, the seller permits prospective purchasers to conduct their due diligence. Following the audit, the third-party prepares and distributes a Vendor Due Diligence Report (VDDR) to all relevant parties for evaluation, after which it invites potential buyers to conduct their due diligence.

Step 3

The complexity of the sale influences the negotiation process between the involved entities. The complexity of the transaction affects negotiations.

Step 4

Upon finalizing a partnership, the VDDR is forwarded to the purchaser by the external party.
