IT / Digital Due Diligence
Buy Side Problem:Once Indication of Interest (IOI) or Letter of Intent (LOI) is signed, an IT Due Diligence engagement is executed. Typically, IT Due Diligence focuses solely on IT issues (e.g., infrastructure, applications, security, limitations, scalability, and IT capabilities and leadership). Today, Digital Transformation is a major driver for Value Creation, and the “Art of the Possible” needs to be assessed and risks and opportunities identified as these meaningful insights can drive your Value Creation plan and inform your bid.
Our Solution:Thorough IT Due Diligence reports are a competitive advantage to help you and your firm uncover the greatest Value Creation opportunities faster with a custom plan on how to grow the target company. Our senior team of business and technology leaders have hands-on M&A experience, are skilled at identifying Value Creation opportunities, and understand how to transform companies into integrated data- and process-driven “Digital” companies.
The MG Difference
Sell Side Problem:When a PE firm decides to sell a portfolio company, a Sell Side IT Due Diligence assessment may or may not be performed. This can be a lost opportunity. In addition, most IT Due Diligence vendors focus on IT issues (e.g., infrastructure, applications, security, limitations, scalability, and IT capabilities and leadership). Today, Digital Transformation is a major driver for Value Creation, and the “Art of the Possible” needs to be uncovered and opportunities identified as these meaningful insights can drive the Value Creation plan of the PortCo's buyer.
Our Solution:Complete Sell Side IT / Digital Due Diligence reports are a competitive advantage to help you and your firm sell your PortCo at a higher multiple, with Value Creation opportunities outlined and prioritized to help the new owner execute and grow the company to the next level.
Our experienced team of business and technology leaders have first-hand M&A experience, are experts at identifying Value Creation opportunities, and understand how to transform companies into data- and process-driven “Digital” companies.

What our clients are saying:
“I thought your team did a really nice job. I came out of that presentation with a very good understanding of what they have compared to what we have, the pros and cons of each, and the possible paths forward. As if not more important, you did a nice job tying it back to the business. On all those fronts, I can’t say I have come out of any other IT diligence readout feeling the same way.”
