Business Risk Evaluation and Winning Management Strategy

Every business faces varying degrees of risks on a daily basis. Now, what is vital for its survival is, knowing how these risks will affect your business. Risk detection, risk evaluation and risk management are all significant processes that every business carries out whether it does so knowingly or not. Having a formal system in terms of developing a strategy for risk analysis in place will ensure that the business owners, management and employees are all working together to enhance business resilience and growth opportunities as well.

Developing a Strategy

Providing a precise and inclusive representation of an organization’s future performance requires a Business Intermediary to consider both positive and negative features of its operations. A SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis provides a four-pronged system for assessing risk that links a business’s inner strengths and weaknesses to the opportunities and threats in its outer environment. This accepted tool helps valuator’s organize their thoughts and offers a holistic risk evaluation.

Identifying Risks

Developing a framework to deal with risks is not at all a complex and daunting task. Four simple steps can complete a risk management plan for most businesses. Find out what can happen, how and why a risk may arise and whether it can benefit or threaten the business. Risks can come from anywhere, yet below are the sources of some most common risks to any business:

  • Operational Risks (viz. fraud or processing errors)
  • Regulatory and Legal Risks (viz. contractual or third party injury)
  • Natural Risks (viz. storm, flood or diseases)
  • Financial Risks (viz. sources of funds or interest rate fluctuations)
  • Political and Socio-Economic Risks (viz. terrorism or change in government policy)
  • Strategic Risks (viz. new competitor or loss of key personnel)

Risks Related to the Buyer

For different types of buyers, it is crucial for evaluators to find out the risks related to the choice of one buyer instead of another. To ensure a valuator’s subjective decision is well supported and reasonable, below are some factors to consider very early in the process.

  • Is the buyer acting on behalf of a competitor?
  • What works behind his or her motivations?
  • Can he or she afford to involve in the transaction?

These considerations will help in investigating exactly how these risks can affect the appraiser’s assessment. Regardless of the adverse scenario that may arise, the assistance of an experienced Business Intermediary will certainly help you identify more about business value vs. risk, selling your existing business or buying a new one.

Hence, the valuator’s support and guide their clients through the varying steps of the buying or selling process. You may also contact an attorney to review valuator’s subjective decisions for ensuring that all risk factors have received enough attention.

An Overview Of Due Diligence And Its Benefits

The judicious investor can understand the huge benefits of purchasing an established business, but also acknowledges the pitfalls awaiting the unwary buyer. Before finalizing the purchase, the cautious buyer can avoid the various acquisition risks by engaging in thorough diligence evaluation. However, there are some clients who often skip due diligence, considering it a spare expense, and such step is usually unwise. If you are willing to buy a business in Edmonton, a systematic process of due diligence can help you prevent a financial pitfall. You can also engage Performance Business Brokers a leading Edmonton business broker to assist in the due diligence of a business acquisition.

Significance of due diligence

A due diligence analyst has a number of responsibilities. Some of the crucial jobs include discovering undisclosed problems, verifying the accuracy of the seller’s representations and discovering hidden assets and opportunities. All these factors help in increasing the client’s confidence in the original business valuation. Similarly, uncovering neglected or hidden assets automatically raises the value of the deal for the buyer. As a result of revealing undisclosed issues if there are any, the purchaser gets an opportunity to change his mind and walk away from the deal. It also offers him a measure to get into negotiating for a more appropriate acquisition price.

Various types of due diligence

  • Commercial – review of market, industry and business model of the issuer.
  • Financial- review of financial position, policies, tax and internal controls.
  • Reputational – review of reputation of individual counter-parties and credit worthiness.
  • Legal–review of documentation for identifying potentially legal issues that may pose impediments or risks to the (i) transaction or (ii) in the issuer’s general operations, that may affect the consideration or value in connection with the dealing.

The major purpose of diligence evaluation as well as structuring of the transaction lies in:

  • Identifying issues relating to documentation and structuring.
  • Identifying contractual and legal impediments.
  • Verifying or confirming warranties and representations.
  • Undertaking processes for the verification of representations and warrants provided.
  • Validating business plan and examining issues and principal areas that needs to be recognized in the business plan.
  • It helps in determining its impact on the proposed transaction.
  • Address, understand and if possible determine risks and build plan of action to mitigate the same.
  • Transaction management and formulating solutions and suggestions to deal with problems.
  • Placing the buyer in a better position depending on the risks addressed, so that the deal can be negotiated or the cost of the acquisition can be adjusted. The buyers also get the opportunity to tailor the indemnities and warranties.

The approach to the due diligence process depends on what is intended to be accomplished and the type of transaction. It is a process of objective and thorough examination that is undertaken before the entry of corporate entities into major transactions like mergers and acquisitions, project finance and security, issuing new stock or other securities and so on. One of the major objectives of due diligence is to minimize the possibility of unknown risks or liabilities to the maximum extent practicable.
