Partnering with Mowery & Schoenfeld for buy- or sell-side due diligence will give you the confidence you need to close the deal.

At Mowery & Schoenfeld, we offer objective, buy-side and sell-side due diligence services that enable our experts to examine and validate the financial aspects of the deal, revealing risks and opportunities before you proceed.

What is a quality of earnings due diligence engagement? Essentially, it’s an assessment that confirms the earnings provided by the firm of the target company. Our due diligence methodology may turn up instances of improper accounting in which revenue and expenses are reported in incorrect periods, expenses are missing, discontinued operations are not reported, and improper add-backs make earnings look better than they actually are. These issues must be addressed before you decide whether or not to buy the company.
