Due diligence

Better deals through good research

We help investors make better deal decisions by performing due diligence, assessing performance improvement opportunities and providing a post-acquisition agenda.

To maximize the value of every transaction Evolve employs a focused and tailored approach to rapidly identify and understand potential deal breakers, value drivers and other areas of specific interest to our clients.

We help clients flesh out their investment thesis of how a proposed deal will make money. We then work with clients to test the investment thesis by concentrating on the big issues that will determine the deal’s ultimate success. We combine fieldwork interviewing customers, suppliers and competitors with sophisticated financial analysis to build a proprietary understanding of the investment’s true cash flow potential. Finally, as part of the due diligence process, we help clients develop an agenda for creating value once the deal is closed.

In addition to external assessment, as timing and protocol allow, we also conduct a thorough internal one, interviewing the target company’s management, as well as reviewing its customer base, personnel and operations.

Evolve can support all stages of this process, including presentation of letters of intent, provision of objective, third-party business analysis to enable financing and the generation of enthusiasm for the deal within the target company.

Our team can execute in buy and sell side situations.

Human Resources

People at the heart of any business

Building better companies is only possible by having a great team of people. It is important to know what drives people. People are essential to any business. They can make or break any business. We help in ensuring that people are the added value they deserve to be.

What do we do

Employment & Labour Law
In corporation with our law practice we will help you in understanding the labour laws covering everything from benefits and wages to discrimination and harassment. We provide information about Dutch employment laws and regulations and how employers should comply with them.

We set up labour contracts according to the latest standards. Our legal practice will set up contracts and we will help you in utilizing them within your organization.

Changing the business
Collective redundancies, salary and paid holidays cut backs, ending the bonus scheme: these are all possible measures taken by employers due to the economic crisis. Measures which almost always (have to be) taken in consultation with trade unions and/or the Works Council (OR). Involvement of and contribution by the Works Council, as the representative of the employees within the company, is now more important than ever. We help in participating in the decision making process.

Works Council
The Works Council is an important stakeholder. We strongly believe that a Works Council is essential for maintaining a check and balance system in any business. Dutch law has recognized this by giving the Works Council rights. This is clear from case law. We help both business management and Works Council in understanding their rights.

Our advice to each Works Council is to seriously exercise these rights. The employer may, moreover, take advantage of a Works Council that seriously utilizes the opportunities of the Works Council Act (WOR). After all, a proposal made by the employer which is endorsed by the Works Council has support in the company so that implementation of for example the above unpopular measures is easier.

Illness rates can tell much about an organization. It actually is a good business health indicator. We assist in setting up programs to minimize illness rates.
