Private Equity

In today’s highly competitive Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) market, high valuations and condensed diligence exclusivity periods are the norm. Current deal trends — ranging from materially completing due diligence prior to signing the Letter of Intent (LOI), to increased reliance on representation and warranty insurance and even sell-side due diligence — necessitate a greater focus on speed and accuracy during due diligence.

We Get the Deal Done

At EHS Support, we’ve adapted our environmental, health, and safety (EH&S) due diligence strategies to account for these trends, reducing dead-deal costs and ensuring EH&S related activities do not slow down your transaction deal. We understand the schedule and time demands in the private equity world and how success can hinge on the ability to quickly understand complex deal dynamics, quantify risks, and provide transaction structure alternatives to get the deal closed — and we have built a team that thrives in this environment. Success during due diligence is not achieved by identifying issues or concerns in lengthy reports or data tables, but rather by developing focused and quantified business solutions that you can use to close the deal. Our proprietary cost model allows us to quickly and confidently estimate liabilities and to go beyond standard environmental site assessments by quantifying and putting technical environmental issues within the context of the transaction.

With You Every Step of the Way

Communication and client advocacy are our top priority. Our team is also well-versed in EH&S transactional tools, such as environmental and representation and warranty insurance, bringing a holistic approach to environmental due diligence. We support clients throughout the life cycle of the deal — from translating due diligence results into addressing and integrating strategic EH&S needs to increase value, all the way through EH&S divestiture preparation in order to maximize your exit value.
